Behind Door Number One


I dream of hearts as locks and doors
as exits. This line is about those who wish
for the soilidity of concrete.


This verse is for those who float

on the air or drift on waves.
But for the middle grounder, there
may be balance.

Meaning emerging from the
closet is like, but not limited
to, a heart beating approaching total
synchronicity with another heart that
is out of sync with every heart.
