Every wardrobe opens onto Narnia. A little sneeze past the mothballs; a little toe-stubbed stumble over the forgotten rollerskates ... a step ... into that other world. It does not need to be imagined alive by us; it is always there, just there. We must imagine ourselves alive enough to perceive of it.

Monday's Poem

this, in the hopes of not being rescued

with eyes like fine bone china buried
in the sands of a smugglers' cove
sailboat souls are we both for
whom navigating is a bore and a chore
so we fell off the edge of the world.

Just now.
