Friendship revisited after absence,
paranoia has burrowed its way into spaces left vacant,
times past, jokes cast, laughs laughed,
…no more.

Serious businesses (not so), now smothering the light of the day,
trust and generosity, sensibility, gone …led astray.

A swinging door left unhinged, it is banging in the breeze,
left open but somehow still locked,
closed minds …they have no keys.


Prompt: Unhinged



Obscured view of mosque,
Kargilik, Xinjiang, China.
