ENTER EXITS

He says doors
and windows
are to enable us
to come within,
to be safe from all
that is outside,
to make this space
a sanctuary.
She says windows
and doors
are to allow us
to merge with the sky,
taste the river,
and sing songs
taught us by the moon.
The doors and windows
know well they
do not divide
here and there,
the last moment
and the next –
they are illusions
stretched across
the margins of reality
and will disappear
with a fleeting thought.
