Remember the guest
Who stole the room
You gave her to stay and be sheltered in?
Beware the door
That opens to nothing--
A void where no guest can stay, again.
At the station, the stealer
Is stopped by her burden--
A room on a chain on the platform, stopped;
The thief is charming,
Policemen pet her,
Debating whether to hold her or not.
She steals the station,
The train and the tracks,
The schedules and benches, the smoke from the stacks.
Shutter the house,
Leave the lack,
Take only your heart and never look back.
