My response to Sacha Black’s #WRITESPIRATION 72 A STORY IN 120 SECONDS
is an ancient craft:
the first locks were found in Nineveh and Egypt;
Romans wore keys on their fingers,
showing off their wealth,
rich enough to keep their treasures
under lock and key.
is a mysterious craft:
magical, when you think of thieves and burglars
skeleton keys and picking locks,
and the locksmith
a sorcerer’s apprentice.
