The Door
By Michael Phi

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.
