Poem A Day Challenge Day 2 - Outsider

National Poetry Month

Poem A Day Challenge Day 2 - Outsider

----------


Banished


I blow as loudly
and fiercely as I can
against the window
I try slipping in
through that crack
beneath the door

halfway down the
chimney bricks
the smoky belch
of a burning log
Forces me back up
and out into the night

time was once
a winter storm
could steal inside
between the cracks
there in the walls

could squeeze betwixt
The loose panes
rattling in their frames

nowadays in the age
of blown insulation
and energy efficiency
I'm left howling in frustration

an outsider
banished to the wildness
of a cold, black night
