a door in the day – for Lou Smith


a door in the day

for Lou Smith


none thought to lock


bring the bones

come flesh


do come in

you’re welcome


say I, the inhabited fancy


step through the city

take this pill, melt  


a fall of sunlight here

just where the day grows over


come seasons, turn

roller skates


prepare me a piano please

or any strings at all


not to show you

just to say

the only way

to make the door

is to open it

and step in
