Hidden Spaces
cap, captain miss america
For what it's worth,
It was never intended that we would see
The interior of that room:
The discarded bookshelves leaning against a wall,
The lone roll of toilet paper
Unrolled, slightly (six sheets),
Lying at a forty-five degree angle to the door.
A few paper clips, scattered,
And something shiny in the corner-- perhaps a penny.
Nothing in this space has been waiting for anyone.
But sometimes unassuming doors remain unlocked,
And we step inside,
Coughing as our feet kick up layers of dust
Previously undisturbed.

Thank you! It's based on a conversation I had with intrepia

I love how you are able to arrange these simple descriptions into poetry :)

Well, it's not about arranging descriptions into poetry. It's about writing poetry that describes things, simply.

are there cardboard boxes??
