BORDERS AND BOUNDARIES, NO.19, NAPOWRIMO

 

If we pulled up

all the carpets,

all the rugs,

how many secrets

would we find 

swept into shadows 

that never settle?

If we turned up

all the mistruths,

all the twists,

how many futures 

could we save

from being

cast into creatures 

that cannot comfort?

    I bet some of those secrets would burrow into the wood beneath the rug. 🙂
    I like your drawing, too. It makes me think of Edward Gorey.

      The rotting beneath the rug, I guess. Thanks for the Edward Gorey ref, a little more time for each one might inspire something closer. happy weekend
