People wake up in the middle of the night.

No, not in the middle

They know the present, the little braveries.

We lock our doors from the inside.

We want to be delivered.

We want the patience of mirrors.

We want not to be torn in two by a brown river.

We want the courage to dive

Off the high board into human eyes.

Behold the door.

The lock’s alive.
