You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.


Hate and violence
Pour out from the mouth
Like hailstones.

He savagely denounces them
And swears death
On them!

His hot-summer mind
Slowly melts the snow,
On his threats, until
A deafening bang
Quells his soul!

The author's comments:
This poem is based on the final years of Malcolm X, who advocated violence to battle racial prejudice, unlike Martin Luther King Junior.
