The Answer

The silent sound

Of doors slamming

One after the other

No

No

No

That word is so familiar now

It’s my daily litany

I wonder what is wrong with me

Or…

Maybe it’s not me but the world

Maybe the world really

Doesn’t give a damn

Maybe it’s damned

Familiar faces turn away

Friends fall by the wayside

Everyone is safe

Safe inside their houses

So why should they care

About someone knocking

On their door?

Just ignore it, pretend you’re out

And it will go away

Or…

Maybe all those “No”s 

Are signposts to a better “Yes”
