In the Basement
Haley, Age 11, Beaverton, OR

A basement,
an empty but full place.
a rectangle of
light
shone through
a window, brightening
a patch on the
floor, the old
pipes in the
walls
creaked with age.
A single skate hung
on
a rusty nail
pushed into the wall.
As wind from
the
window
flew in, the skate
rocked
back and forth,
rocking the baby mouse
inside
to
sleep.
