The Secret Room (posted to Facebook on 3/12/08)

feathers scattered
on a carpet ecru.

lights dimmed.

full of emptiness,
somber solitude,
shifty smiles.

a crucifix hangs
on the far wall--
Lord and Savior,
Angel of Mercy.

the closet door:
open but still
locked from the inside.

a skeleton of a boy
slumped inside
beholds the crucifix
with swollen eyes.
