Dumb doorknob



I never really think about doorknobs

Until they fall off—

A culprit in causing

Claustrophobic catastrophe.

This one is transparent.

The palm I had read

Last month is magnified,

Morphed, like it’s under sea.


This is a doorknob,

Failed.

Is it ashamed?

Maybe it never even wanted

To be a doorknob.

Did it dream of being

A beer bottle,

Scotch tape,

A butter knife,

Socks,

A stapler,

My ingrown toenail?


It’s been days now.

The branches sway

And scratch my window.

The fan blows

And my laundry smells.

The lamp flickers.

And the doorknob lies

On top a metro card

That ironically reads,

“Optimism.”

You've capture the scene remarkably well. I could feel it.

It'd almost seem a shame to move the door knob.
