“The Knob” by Judith Bader Jones––Guest Blogger

“The Knob” 
          For Michael

On left over days
I go to your room,
grasp the knob
on your door.
to feel something of you
cupped in my hand,
left molded in metal,
chilled by the still
resigned in the silence
held in this knob
the touch of your hand.

         The Light in Ordinary Things, Fearless Poetry Series, Vol. I
