ESCAPE PLAN

Open the door quickly
for you may find a wonderland:
a bottled djinn waiting for your wish,
a mangy dog looking for scraps
his fur wet and matted, head down.

Open the door quickly –
it may be the entrance to a gallery
or another door, and another
until you are outside
and must open a door to come in.

Open the door quickly
that we might capture the last
of daylight and inhale the aroma
of the first star of night.

Open the door quickly –
the earth beckons, crying out
as a new child is born,
as she is rent to form the pocket
for those recently gone.

Open the door quickly
for the mental  walls
in which you choose to live
have grown boring.
