Portal to Somewhere Else

In isolation
Self-insulated
I make a portal to
Somewhere else

In my locked bedroom

I wire the sounds
That heave with emotion
Like heavy seas spraying
Decks of passing ships
That makes slick the
Oiled wood keeping
A simple rigged vessel
Afloat

I string the lights
Like stars and supernovae
On the same wavelength
As the audio waves
Frequency tuned just
Right to coax that portal
To open
Stepping through

Stepping into
Shifting dunes
Glass and concrete
Forests
Cities
And mountains nestled
Into ancient valleys
As titanic guardians

Anyplace
That isn’t this lonely place
Take me to
Somewhere Else
