By Crystal Gail Koo

there is something in the confines of corridors

that fails to forget the vastness of experience

and in every corner every crack of light is a

detail containing the trace of sights smells

sounds of things long left behind in the moment

between loved and lost like a flower in a vase

so frail that hands cannot hold without breaking

that minds cannot hold without changing but

only a corridor can cup it in its silent palms and

only when everyone has abandoned the moment

the time when the days had gone so freely will

it open its hands and let it disappear into the

bluest sky
