Change opens doors to new beginnings….
but the turning of the knob,
the creaking of the hinge,
the stepping over the threshold without tripping
requires tender care of the heart,
attentiveness to each muscle’s
analyses of the physical and mental coordination
to manage the body with respect to another
passing through the same doorway,
in opposite direction;
of very different worlds.
It was the slow loss of tenderness when fully aware of the speed of his indifference.
