Evolution of a Poem

The Elevator

Dedicated to the elevator at KCC that reincarnated my lifelong terror of elevators...

The jaws of Death
    Slide open--
"Welcome," they bid me
And beckon me onward
   Past the iron teeth
   To ride the metal tongue
   As it falls/slides/screams
   Down the steel throat
Bringing me
          Eons/minutes later
   To my destination.
