The Door

Michael Phi, Up on Top at Tenderloin Community School


I always get opened and closed

They push, pull, and bang on me.

I get kicked down by kids and get ran over.

Sometimes they replace me with someone else when I am old.

Sometimes they push a button on me and it makes a sound.

They wait and someone opens me.

They tell them to come in.

Then they close me again.
