Prompt: Outsider


We moved a lot.

Town to town, place to place,

Ghost towns and cities.

Quiet and loud.

My family followed the gold.

Boom and Borasca.

I had my family.

Unchanging and unflinching.

But I was always the new kid.

I never said, I knew him since kindergarten.

Because I didn’t

I never said, your mom and my mom are friends

Because they weren’t

I said Hi, my name is Lystra, I’m new.

Strange name strange town.

Time to start again.
