Portal 7

Portal 7: Quebec City (24 May 2014)
(For other works in my Portals series, click here.)

A door just opened on a street--
    I, lost, was passing by--
An instant's width of warmth disclosed,
    And wealth, and company.

The door as sudden shut, and I,
     I, lost, was passing by,--
Lost doubly, but by contrast most,
     Enlightening misery.

-- Emily Dickinson, Life series, Poem CXI
