Foyer to Elsewhere by Sneha Subramanian Kanta

foyer to elsewhere

free yourself but do not run

ring and circle the world

of smoke wisps falls

into an encumbered

back at the circle

with intrigue. shapes

are different from form.

door, thistle, empty jug

is all you need to navigate

through the amber sun.
