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


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
