They shut the gate and only the air streamed through

They closed door and dug a ditch

They raised the bridge

And sealed the window

They rebuilt the old wall where it had scattered itself, fallen stone

They battened the hatch

And latched the skylight, to keep out the sky

They put up the blinds

And lowered the portcullis

They darkened the world

And peered through slit arrow windows

With crossbows tightened and notched

Their fingers triggered and ready

They narrowed their eyes

And when the doorbell jangled on the old sweetshop

And the door swung open

No one came in.
