The kid's game No Key Locks

A question for Andy Riverbed:

You reference, more than once, in that poetry book of yours, a kid's game called No Key Locks. I never played or heard of this game before. Can you explain how it went?

We used to play Mercy (where you would try to crush the fingers of your opponent) which sounds closest.

i think there are many variations on the kid game no key locks, and sometimes they aren't played by kids. sometimes adults play.

Is it a Puerto Rico thing?

i'd kill to know what the hell you guys are talking about...

andy.riverbed said...

what i'm talking about sometimes kills, sometimes it makes you alive.

sex? cocaine? love? death?

andy.riverbed said...

like it said, it varies. your kid games might be concretely different than mine, but nonetheless it's probably a kid game and you know it.

renaissance jones said...

oh riverbed. you're so enigmatic. sometimes i want to chop you into little tiny bits, cook you in a spoon, and shoot you right in my veins.
