First Door

crushing petals just to get the scent
cracked bones for the main event
settled on fair
you’re settled there
resist just ‘cuz it’s tempting
you think it must be bad
and opportunities
like skipping stones
passed you by alone
synth fragrance middle field nowhere
indicates your lifetime there
you can’t convince me
you never hoped for more
and don’t curse the first door
