Open Door


United States
40° 43' 56.1144" N, 73° 59' 14.6796" W

i am speaking to an open door
which communicates, red-faced
and feeds me compliments
that i munch on like almonds

i can feel the breeze from the
other side.
like landing on boardwalk,
or finding a new flavor of ice cream
that's the best thing you've ever eaten.

the door beckons,
to a universe that i don't quite know,
a universe where i am the door
but i am closed,
and the open door is open
but it is someone else.
