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.


He approaches.
A man as tall as a high-rise,
With a foaming mandible,
And a bulging stomach.
His teeth are like serrated knives and spit dribbles from his mouth.

The author's comments:
What influenced me for this poem was “Jack and the Beanstalk.” This poem is from Jack’s perspective when he first encounters the giant.
