Poem - The Closet of the Before

The poem “Closet of the Before” is about the discovery of self stepping out with that side and then retreating after the embedded realization conflicts with a wider world.


The Closet of the Before

Exploration of the unknown
plumbing depths once concealed
was the passion of the past
shown in displays few surpassed

the cavalcade without demure
exclaimed out loud for all to hear
has fallen quiet once the task
was completed with ends to last

those changes are now internalized
known to self in full resolve
even while the world decides
to disagree with pointed knives

it's no wonder the response
a retreat from consequence
includes identity's detour
to the closet of the before.
