Back To Home


I walked a once-familiar street

and saw the house where I was raised;

I understood access was mine

and so I went inside.

The rooms were there as I remembered;

I knew a childhood happiness again,

Glancing out, I saw the city as it was

a long half century ago.

But then I glimpsed an unexpected door

where I had not remembered one,

a small low door, in a room's corner.

I OPENED IT AND ENTERED ----

entered an alien room, huge and grey,

which led to other rooms and other worlds,

landscapes lost in time, strange dimensions

dark and undescribed ----

I fled the house,

fled down fluid streets,

through dim dissolving courts,

till panic fear

at last awoke me!
