A silver locket
cupid embossing the front
in relief
the heart shape
the missing chain.
There is a small indentation
in the side, used to pry open
the halves of the locket.

A silver heart-shaped locket.

A sterling silver heart-shaped locket.
Cupid, the cherub, embossed on the front,
a groove to open the closed halves.
The locket has not a chain
it can't be worn
it sits in a black velvet box
it waits for saint valentine
