It takes so little
(Relatively speaking)
To get me angry.

About all the wrong things;
Seething over slow connections
Gnashing my teeth
About some small thing or another
Boiling, Festering,
Raging within the confines
Of my head.
None of it righteous.
All unproductive.
Wanting to
But turning it

Where it poisons me;
Sharpening my tongue
Dulling my heart
Overturning my mind
Collecting in the clench
Of fists and jaw.

I’m so much like him.
So much like them.

So similar to what
I abhor.

And so I abhor

  1. I wish I didn’t get angry over small things but sometimes they just build, don’t they? There really are so many more important things to get angry over, better things. And that’s when I feel useless because I can’t do anything but get angry about it. And I abhor useless anger, and feeling useless.
    And so, I write.

    Very powerful, Sweetness. And truthful.

    Anger – such a bitter taste in the mouth and all that and rarely useful – so well described.
