You’ve been given a key that can open one building, room, locker, or box to which you don’t normally have access. How do you use it, and why?

A golden key,

you say?

What a gift!

It must be

magic,

since you claim it will unlock

my dreams,

hopes,

desires.

They’ve been locked away

out of reach

for a

very

long

time.

What is this golden key?

Where did you find it?

Why give it to me?

Oh,

I see.

The golden key you offer,

isn’t made of metal,

but paper,

glue, and ink.

You place it in my hand.

I smile, look down,

take a comfy seat and curl up

to read this golden key.

And what do you know?

In its pages I find my dreams,

unlocked.
