A Wooden Horse Key Chain

The key chain I gave 
you as a keepsake
makes me think what you 
must have done with it.
You may have kept it 
in your yellow bag
beside cosmetics
and a handkerchief
without putting any
key in the ring of it.
It may now touch your 
fingers when you search 
for coins as change or 
a shade of lipstick.
