Not quite Opening Up
Soon, maybe too soon,
more shop floors will thump
to the beat of footsteps again,
and more people will be about and out
maybe even out out with pride,
but while narrow closed minds still exist,
I think I'll prefer to stay inside my own worlds;
it is distanced enough
in time and space from all society,
though there is always enough room
for a special few
and a spot for a close companion.
Though then again,
I always have plenty of obstacles and barriers and masks
to bar any who may have thought to enter...
