Pray

Pray, I hope to live in time
When forgone is our use of deadbolt.

A tragic happenstance that locked
With the dead are doors, that such is
Clad the threshold of home and hearth.

I am kindred to a future of livebolts, and
The day we unlock doors with the living
An unbarring tutelary that welcomes—
Extending visitation hospitality,
Such even as soon to a sorry thief.
