Remind me why I opened the door

as I sit in fading sunlight

watching

ships head out to sea

the door

now open

shattered

by repeated openings

and closings

each memory

locked in a splinter

that falling to the ground reminds the door

reminds me

reminds everyone that you cannot

be a child anymore

and leaving the door open

again

watching the sun fade away

watching the geese fade

their broken v

missing  a member

perhaps

a splinter by the door

on the ground

why did I open the door

now hanging useless from my hand

I am unchanged

but around me

lies change

and the door

will never close again…
