Off the hook

The world is new and harsh.
Letters pile up against grandfather's name.
He stashes them away
next to the hurricane lantern.
A hook runs through them:
Daughter's troubles with the world.
Son's tryst with destiny.
Grandchildren growing up.

The keys change hands.
Rusty locks are thrown out to decay.
Worries too find their way out.

Are they really gone?
Let off the hook?
