POEM: "Museum Of Locks"

Museum of Locks

                                             for Lily Tan

Every time I go across the river
My taxi passes a tiny place called
Museum of Locks, between
Two hapless shops in Fuxing Lu
& if we hit the traffic just right
I manage to look inside where
The tight walls are covered with
Hundreds of locked examples
Whose ancient doors and closets
Are unlocked like old memories
Now free to roam, now free to all
Or maybe not, waiting patiently
Locked up again, re-opened.
