Windowless Rooms

Poetry By: teargen

Rooms without windows are too cold.

They are commonly cold
somewhat like a vault.
Take away the furniture
they stay a handball court.
Take away the colored chalk
a featureless blackboard face.
Pale green walls
made of stone,
length times width
all echoes turn to moan.
Professor, blue suit and tie
goatee neatly trimmed,
diagrams are complex windows,
the glass double-strength.
Erase all numbers
more windows disappear.
Windowless rooms,
the horizon is a baseboard
we long to see further.
(That formula is clear.)
Remove us all
windowless aftermath;
and so it is we firmly knock
against a pane of glass.
