Prompt napowrimo.net: “Today, I challenge you to write a poem that uses the form of a list to defamiliarize the mundane.

Things I Found in Her Box

A long skeleton key

A shorter skeleton key

An even shorter skeleton key

Another skeleton key the same length

A piece of a peace pipe

A tiny handmade coin purse

A handmade coaster

A twisted paperclip (to pick locks?)

A mouse pin

A maple leaf pin

A mouse stick pin

An unidentifiable pin

A bell hanging on a loop

A jingle bell

A miniature bell tower bell

A six sided bell
