the yellow wallpaper (version)/

slowstep up the stairs
tortured creak with each rise
doorhold with wide eyes
staring into moonlit room
husband, husband --
shadows casthands
& the facedoor's slow smile
tick-tick, shuffle step
frozen faces in the window
                                         STOP!
her fingerslide
eyes wide yellow wallpaper
               moving like the sea
escape a touch away
