Partitions in Transition

© Matthew Word Bain

multi-colored divisions
with nothing left to divide
I keep wondering what was
in this space and has now gone
what did these partitions separate?
was the floor really always that bare?
these remnants evoke mystery even as
they invite curiosity and speculation
I peer in at the windows, imagine
this liminal space to be static
even as it is ever changing
on its way to becoming
something brand new
