NO TRESPASSING

rural-1463968_960_720

Unsteady walls

False drawers

Cracked floors

Maintenance

Red light

Pay attention

I need…

It has to be here

Somewhere

Shuffled papers

Yellow highlights

Footnotes

Small print

Check the box

Yes or No

Check the box

Blank stare

Too many

Empty boxes

It has to be here

Somewhere

The answer

The truth

Hidden

Hiding

Fe Fi Fo Fum

I smell the blood

Of sacrifice

And heartache

Of Inner conflict

And self-defeat

Inside the victory

Of choice

Forced upon

Chipped away

My freedom

A slave to reality

A searching

For choice

Inside gravity

No trespassing

Constrained

A knotted rope

Unraveled

Revealing

The one choice left

My reaction

  1. I couldn’t help thinking of the chorus of the song “Signs” by The Five Man Electrical Band:

    “Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
    Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind
    Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?”

    You describe something so familiar, so often.
