{lonely} boy

 No messages, you have no messages
the sanitised voice revealed.
No messages, no friends, no life
Thomas concluded in his head
He imagined pressing the button
proclaimed the number of friends
no friends, you have no friends
Thomas moved through his house
Once more he imagined the button
the shrill metallic female
Shouted, don't you get it - loser boy
no message, no friends, no life
Thomas had been here before
in the toxicity of loneliness
he stood by the window
and cried.
