Day 121 prompt: The Letter O

young readers may not get this poem
most likely, its undertones will go
OVERHEAD

the subject is the big O

not OPRAH or OBAMA …
though surely big Os have
OCCURRED
for them

not OVERSTOCK or OPENTABLE
though both have certainly enticed visitors to seize
OPPORTUNITIES
to consume products or foods that lead to big Os

not OMAHA or ONTARIO
though hopefully those cities’
OCCUPANTS
routinely experience big Os

not ORIFICES or ORAL tradition
though both OPTIONS
afford excellent
OCCASION
to achieve a great big O

no, it is none of these

without being
OVERT,
the best way to suggest this big O
is through
ORDINARY
alliteration

OH OH OH OH OHHHHHH!
