Pictures at an Exhibition

Don’t be shy, step in,

cross the threshold, leave this world.

These unlocked doorways,

these open windows,

unspoken invitations

to another place.

Do you know this sky

with its looping skein of birds,

its upswept cloudscape?

This woman dancing

barefoot on a rocky shore

beneath a round moon?

This twisted pathway

under dark, unfriendly trees,

eyes in the shadows?

This couple, naked

on the edge of winter, sad,

leaving the garden?

Having once stepped in,

will you return unaltered,

having seen such things?

Having crossed over,

will you recognise your world?

Will you be the same?
