nearing the novel

nearing the novel

one slip of paper changed
— everyone’s lives in seconds

i did as told
— took off my clothes

showered for less than the
— five minutes allotted

then stood naked to brush
— my teeth and hair

steam cleared the mirrors
— i gasped at them staring

then laughing and taking
— polaroids

from the other side of
— the bathroom window

they slipped a note under the
— door hours later

we’re sorry
— please forgive us

so when they knocked the
— next day

i let them in

it doesn’t matter who knocks at the door; very few people are allowed in.
