The Swinging Door

Cowardice and bravery

Not either-or

But different levels of

 

Valor and shame

A swinging door

Whose facings change when swung

 

A foil to confound

The Poets dream

With glory and disdain

 

Bravery and cowardice

Not zero-sum

  —but often look the same

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: May, 2016)
