NaPoWriMo Day 17 - the letter O of A-Z

Ooooooooooooo! Really?

Ousted



It’s a strange feeling
this state of being ousted
from civilised society
no harsh words flung
at twenty paces
or less
no direct hint
of the exact transgression
or which social more
has been broken
just the chill
of a silent phone,
the blank stare
of an empty mailbox,
and the clipped consonants
of polite conversation
when avoidance is impossible.

  1. O the grief of ostracism - sometimes not even knowing why. Beautifully written thank you ...
