The Door Keeper

I saw a doorkeeper
who made
the guests wait 
at the entrance 
of a crowded eatery
and let them in
as the rush became thin.
Memories that cannot tolerate
the present state 
and pass
without a pause.
Mull over sufferings
of the past.
Think about the future
and fret.
Can I get a doorkeeper
who would stop
the intrusive memories 
at the doorstep,
check and filter through
