Escape Trap

Thanks to imagination,
They were especially skilled
Artisans of fantasies.

They had portals to the past,
The future, the multiverse—
Which was another portal

They invented, actually,
A general-use portal
To go with their specialties

That only opened to one
Particular fantasy
Created by one maker.

This went on until their world
Became so crammed with portals
The gaps began to connect,

And the more anyone tried
To escape the given world,
The more quickly they returned

Into deepening thickets
Of portals blocking the light,
A forest maze made of doors.
