Unemployed (Thursday Doors)
What is a door
without a wall?
What is it for?
It has no frame,
it has no floor–
no in or out,
no surrounding decor–
without a wall,
what is a door?
Another poem for the Thursday Doors Writing Challenge. I picked the theme for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday this week, useful, and Manja’s photo seemed well suited to it. My poem is in a form called “Magic 9”.
I’m still collecting walls that formerly had doors (or windows) and now only contain their phantoms.
This wall lost both its windows and its door.
The former entrance to Number 201 comes with a message and some ventilation.
And, as always, find more doors with host Dan Antion, here.
