Key and Gate

Key and gate.

I’m out the door
forgot my key
time is short
I’m late
but going nowhere
in a keyless state

Tonight the moon
phasing in again
its back to utter reaches
seems for a second
like a key or switch
that needs a turn or click
to open or start some thought
I don’t know what
but imminent nonetheless
behind moon’s back
beyond its silver latch
which will —I hope
not too late
open itself with itself
being in one both
key and gate
.
