Scenarios of Freedom

You awake in a house
surrounded by a hot plate,
refrigerator stocked with food,
fresh water, electricity,
everything you need to survive.
The entire house is open to you.
All seven rooms.
Each room is different.
A home theater, gym,
library, meditation room,
kitchen, bedroom, and bath.
Shards of broken glass are spread
over the floor
no way to clean them up.
If you put on shoes
three of the rooms will
seal shut.
Do you risk slicing, shredding, maiming
your bare feet or
put on your shoes and
living on comfort
with three of the seven rooms
closed to you forever?
