Trish Falin

for all is a wall

black or white black and white
solid solidarity

each taken hidden
saved a locked box
pine metal
wired with an alarm
a hard exterior

the core is a pit
buried in (fruity) flesh

a wall is a stranger to all
for it covers protects rejects
all things for all people
no one sees no one knows

one is a stranger
two unknown three impossible
one is for one none for all

joy is kept power held onto
one for one none for all
no star no sun no moon

a roof a ceiling
conceals light
no stars
