Park Place Lodge

By Keith Liggett

the click imperceptible
and the key arcs
leaving a ring
silently in the water below
our ringless hands entwined

and later
years later
remembering the click
no longer imperceptible
the pan in a bear trap
unseen unaware

one leg
still chained
scribing a circle
bare dirt
devoid of vegetation
scrubbed clean of life
