Recurring dreams
of opened closets
stuffed with
adolescent t-shirts,
ill-fitting blue jeans
& empty hangers

dreams of locked lockers
in high school hallways,
combinations long forgotten;
in need of answers
but the textbooks are
securely just out of reach

why one door should be open
when another is bricked up

dreams are portals
to disappear through;
when you wake up
windows are boarded up

you will never find your way back
