Curtain

Standard

there they lay
against the opening
within the wall
paned in glass

their purpose
is to cover
all that can be seen
outside and in

some consider them
simple decorations
a single layer
carefully patterned

this thin material’s
translucent weaving
between worlds
reveals fuzzy movement

change the material
add another layer
fabric thick
rooms become opaque

blocking everything
from a double sided view
as though there are
no other worlds

a yank of a cord
twist of a rod
opens and closes
the dividing barrier

revealing only
what you want
enhancing views
along the way
