Dropping Keys…I love this poem

December 12, 2004

This is the poem for the "Dropping Keys" painting. Mollie
original painting by Mollie Kellogg
inspired by a poem by Hafiz

 DROPPING KEYS

The small man
Builds cages for everyone
He
Knows.

While the sage,
Who has to duck his head while the moon is low,
Keeps dropping keys all night long
For the
Beautiful
Rowdy
Prisoners.

translation by Daniel Ladinsk
