Living Close to the Ceiling

Living close to the ceiling
like Spiderman or a college kid in a loft
you stare at the ceiling
itís like a movie
you go into the ceiling
itís like Charlotte Perkins Gilman and the yellow wallpaper
but nicer
itís like Lucy and the wardrobe
but higher

What is in the ceiling?
is it the best book youíve ever read
is it the best sex of your life
is it just another room to keep postcards in
