Is a Screen a Door?

photo (5)

It’s obligation

To look at the black mean screen

Perfect for my hand


The glow draws me in

Sometimes it’s simply boredom

That keeps me here, there


What doors would open

If I could just switch it off?

Is a screen a door?


Where does the door go?

I can open it by touch

Turning my mind’s knob.
