Fade In Fade Out

by Beverly A. Jackson

Issue 0 :: Spring 2007 (poetry)

I love how they do that in the movies.
It’s a close-up of a staircase, then the doorknob!
The music soars, and you know it’s coming
but you’re not sure what. Somebody’s climbing.
Somebody’s at the door. Something is out there.
Isn’t that what we dread? And pray for?
