the lines and curves that make
letters that make words that make
phrases and sentences

reach deep inside
become keys for locked doors
ladders to reach rooftops
porches to watch sunsets from
gates to walk through
stages for drama
and confessional boxes

where stories told

break sentences
into phrases
into words
into letters
into lines and curves

where writers are born

behind locked doors
sitting on porches
climbing rooftops
swinging on gates
standing on stage
and in confessional boxes

where lines and curves
become life.
