The House With No Door

A withered man

with shiny eyes
and yellowed teeth
holds a crooked cane
with an ancient hand

 

under a black cloak.

 

He wanders through
the quiet street
deciding
which door his cane

shall meet

 

next.

 

His black eyes find
their mark.
He raises his cane
and knocks again

 

and again.

 

The piercing blows
shatter the night
and his might

 

brings down the door.

 

He shows no pride
he isn't vain,
but his greedy hands
take everything

 

in sight.

 

And as soon as he strikes
he reprieves,
but the house with no door
knows

he never truly
leaves.
