Upper and Lower Worlds by Terry Persun

The difference is slight.

There are scratches

at the door.

Some animal scurries off

as you turn,

and it’s gone to hide

just out of view, but you

know it’s there waiting.


Turn around too often

and you get lost

in the browns,

the fine line between worlds

becomes sharp as glass,

loud as drums

beating against your heart.


Even if you play the game

of hide and find, you’ll never

get out now.
