“…and the road I still
hanker after.” ~ D. Bonta
When the woman said Isn’t it enough,
what else do you need to prove?
When the question, thinly disguised,
was code for You should have stayed
in your place.
When some colleagues stopped
speaking to her for years,
and some fed their kind
of fuel to the rumor
When sparks filled the frame,
she hitched the bar just a bit higher.
In response to Via Negativa: Thinned.
