"Temple of Dendur, papyrus and wishing well, The Met," 2015, by Paul Metrinko


Head out on foot Be unburdened
by key or car Leave all of the house
inside of the house If you slither inside
the locks they can rotate their innards
May we never forget the flame
that we stuck into the candle
May we never set our houses on fire
May we never let the cats get out to starve
or freeze May no strangers pass through
this door to do us harm

Now that that’s out of the way
perhaps we can leave in one effortless motion
out into the air which is not threatened by us
