THE DOOR

A boy’s mother is shot through the front door. The bullet leaves a hole. The hole is an eye in the dark night of the door. The boy puts one of his own eyes to the hole and looks out at the world, looks out at the long road leading away. What should we do? the boy asks his father. Buy a new door, the father replies.
