Munchkin


Suddenly she appears out of nowhere
Her miniature fingers grip the counter
Her big Bambi eyes peer over the desk
Her head an umbrella of sky blue cap
She says I am looking for Mr. Strong
My uncle please has he checked in yet?
She cocks her head like a dachshund
But the little child's uncle is not here I
Am afraid not so sorry and I tell her so
Perhaps he is at a different chain then
She smiles twirls marches out the door
flip flop flip flop in shoes as big as God
