This is where he stood that day.

This is where he heard the news.

The sun shone slant through the blinds

and this is the place where he stood,

still in his coat and his shoes.

 

This is the place and that was the moment,

when everything fell away.

The sun shone slant through the blinds and nothing

would ever be the same.

 

 

And how many people will tread and have trodden

this very same spot on this floor,

without ever suspecting that the boards, these boards, once hid a secret

 

 

 

 

 

trapdoor?
