It’s here, it’s here, it’s here!
Day 1: When One Door Closes: Open a door to the outside world. Step outside and write about it.
The door buzzes as I reach it.
I let in an unknown neighbor, their friend or some potential assailant
(who’s to know for sure?)
It doesn’t matter, though,
(at least not for now)
because the blue sky is above me,
the concrete is below my feet,
and the sun shines on the brick buildings that surround me,
making them alive
as I put one foot in front of the other
