Pop’s Tool Box

found pop’s tool box-
stashed under
mind’s steps

pad-lock still latching-
stripped in forceful
fashion, of

scuffed metal casing
took the tone of
his paved

without the twinkle of
his reflection, nor
the profile of
his marble

stashed pop’s tool box
in space under
mind’s stairs,

with tiny me still
locked in

Grumpy Gorman
