throw the lock and turn the knob

--

Can you see nothing of the moon?
Who is cooped up in their room day and night?
A prisoner of the walls and of the ceiling?
Is the window closed? And are the drapes drawn?
Can you see nothing of the moon? Nothing of the sun?
Are your legs now too weak from atrophy for you
To stand and walk to the door?
Does your hand still possess the strength
To throw the lock and turn the knob?
Do you wish nothing of the fresh air or freedom?
Are you alive or merely existing?
Can you see nothing of the moon?
