This is the second piece for my ongoing series called 'Four Line Tries', where I release four line poems. Simple enough, yeah? If you care to partake, let me know! The imagery here comes courtesy of Miyazaki's debut full-length The Castle of Cagliostro (1979).

in a car door so I don't know

and find your keys, I can help you through this
