Open, mind

After Luke 24:44-49

It didn’t begin
with an open mind,
plural; the open minds
weren’t the first impulse
or prime mover.
the open mind, plural,
required an act,
a command, as in 
“Open, mind(s),”
a deliberate move,
full of purpose 
and import, a cranking
open of the door, replete
with shrieking creaks,
so that understanding
was possible. The door
was opened to allow
the light to enter,
to enable the dispelling
of confusion,
of darkness.
