Where There’s No Door


                  Behold, I stand at the door and knock; 
                  if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, 
                  I will come in to him and will dine with him, 
                                                and he with Me.
                                          —Revelation 3:20 (NAS)
      
      
      Where there's no door ain't nothing to unlock
      for doing your grand intrusion thing on, doc.
      So stand there all you want, prepared to greet
      some dupe with rehearsed door-to-door deceit.
      You may as well ring the doorbell on a rock.

      We're supposed to set a place for you ad hoc?
      We don't keep enough extra meals in stock
      and if we did, we still can't very well meet
                              where there's no door.

      Pity, but it's not dinnertime by our clock.
      Besides, we've what you call a mental block
      against our mouths having to be used to eat
      what you'd want served. Bread's too obsolete
      for being lived on alone. Oh, and don't knock
                              where there's no door.

    another outtake from early november

    surely surely there must be many who would step up to condemn me to burning hell for using a biblical truth as inspiration for a piece on standard clinical psychotherapeutical practice, but they need not bother, i was pretty much damned already – but i’m not even trying to drag god down to my doctors’ level, rather am alluding to how doctors like to play god, how they like to think they’re the ones being like mall santa clauses knocking on our doors as agents serving for the real thing, just trying to get us to sit down to eat

    which is all the commentary i need for this one, rest of it speaks for itself
