A DOOR

A door.

A simple door.

A pot of flowers

sitting before it.

The number one beside it.

What does it mean?

Is the door closed off

from the outside?

No one is to enter.

Why?

Why are the flowers

blocking the way?

Is there a hidden society

tucked away inside?

Or maybe a family

afraid of visitors.

You’ll never know,

unless you knock on the door.

Do you really want to?

Do you want to find out,

or maybe keep it a secret?

The truth might not be

as interesting,

as tantalizing.

Walk away.

Keep the mystery alive.
