      The Door Opened
      
      
      
      if I let the key turn
      to open the door
      of a life I am disappointed in,
      would there still be jam
      in the jar covered with sticky filth
      
      if I gathered a box or two
      would it not be filled with belongings 
      I am unwilling to look at
      
      but are unwanted past things
      always following us around
      in particular following me 
      to a new place I want to be
      
      I want to be
      far away from rude, disrespectful,
      even inconsiderate people
      who call themselves friends and neighbors
      
      so I sit back for awhile
      to relax, to know what I'm doing
      soon asking a simple question
      about whether people actually know
      what they are doing, what's going on
      in such a small world around them
      
      the answer is simple
      like the question was
      and that is
      nobody actually knows
      what is around them
      for sure
      
      I get up
      grab a cold pop
      a Mountain Dew of course
      twist the top off
      and guzzle my thoughts away
