North American Dreaming: Eight Steps

Eight steps lead William Burkholder to a dark, beckoning doorway.

The dark doorway beckons,
The eight steps call,
Planters cast in greenery,
To soften castles call.

Mediterranean lamp light,
Hookah smoke,
Lung bite,
Twice boxed coffee
Strong.

Dryness in the air
Dark doorway doesn't care
Calling, calling me in.
Up the eight steps and then...
Dark door wins,
Taking me in.
