  • Anger

    intrudes

    my well-being

    as well as all of my fantasies

    and realities,

    sometimes becoming

    like a swarming army

    of hungry ants

    at an improvised picnic,

    suddenly appearing

    and

    making its presence known,

    ready to eat its way through

    my privacy of mind

    only to leave me wondering

    where

    it comes from,

    why it will appear

    and

    how far it can go.

    .

    perhaps

    it's because

    I've become the grease

    for the machine.

    or maybe food

    for the higher order

    that just gnaws at things,

    gnaws at me

    continually and ceaselessly,

    gnaws

    at my body and heart

    and

    my mind,

    as well as other things

    of the earth,

    until finally we're all eaten

    alive

    or

    somehow just die

    from the dreaded fear of it.

    .

    well,

    in that case,

    I can only hope

    that I give anger

    what it truly deserves...

    .

    a way out.

    .

    and

    that's pretty much why

    I'm sitting on the can

    locked

    in a bathroom

    at this very moment

    with

    a burning cigarette

    clenched in a fisted hand.

    .

    .
