Outside

rooms boarded up, sealed

off to the world

a computer screen, a tablet, a

cell phone is the window

to the world

meals taken from the

microwave directly to

the boarded-up room to

be quickly scarfed up

doors locked at 3 o’clock

in the afternoon

to keep the outside

outside

years of closed-off living

develops nervous quirks,

twitches that remain hidden –

a wringing of the hands,

facing an object left or right,

right shoe goes on first,

one sock then one shoe and

never both socks then both shoes

.

the outside remains outside

the outside remains outside

the outside remains outside

.

inside is comfort

inside is protection

inside is not outside

.

do not let the outside in
