The Door Creaks - Poem by Dang Huy

A smallish child sits in
the stalling hinges of a painted door
through weathered passage has been soundly
floored

'Used to reach with leisure
fingers out to bear the layman standards
of an entry; pa snuck in between
the creaks

Every night he caught his wife
engaging in the dirty act of dreaming.
