There's Always the Stairs - April 3, 2024

emotions drag us into elevators

and take us wherever they want

no buttons to push


if I see you with balloons on the roof

I’ll probably hear you too

partying with dance music


but if I’m in the basement and

it’s quiet   I might be wallowing

in self-pity and not want to be found


if curiosity or empathy

or whatever compels us

to another floor


and another door

how do we connect if the lift

won’t take directions?


try the stairs
