Frienship’s Door, by Kristen C. Strocchia

Love Made Visible 2016 (1)

Friendship’s Door

 

I knocked—

And no one asked—

What color is your hood?

How big is your house?

Can you read yet?

 

I knocked—

And no one asked—

Does your mom have frizzy hair?

Is your dad as dark as night?

Do you say hola or hello?

 

I knocked—

And no one asked—

Is that goat cheese in your lunch?

Do you start counting with your finger or your thumb?

Are you too big to run?

 

I knocked,

And no one asked.

The door swung open wide.

“Come on in,” everyone said.

“Just in time for tea party and blocks, finger-painting and frogs.”
