Robin Wright – 1 poem

Little Girl Looking Through a Peephole

 

She grabs the chair

with the caned seat,

scoots it to the door,

climbs up, presses

her face against wood,

stares into the hallway

outside this room

at New Harmony Inn.

The room is small.

But the world beyond,

one with cats and cars,

milkshakes and money.

One she only glimpses

through that small hole.
