Poem a Day, Day 9

Today’s challenge was to pick a word, any word, and write a poem about it or use it in different ways. Here’s my go at the word "community"


A loaded word. Is a family a community?

If so, it’s the only one I’ve felt I belong

Is it your neighborhood?

How many people talk to their neighbors anymore?

We go to our cars, heads down

We got things to do

can’t talk

can’t relate

must MySpace


-Justin M. Howe
