Anger On a Sunny Day
I’ve darkened this sunshine
with unnecessary anger.
Anger bubbling up out of me
like unwanted and unscheduled lava.
Red-hot lava glowing so intensely
that it can’t be touched
Where did this spew come from?
Has it been boiling all this time
beneath my unnaturally bright and cool veneer—
or has it surged new, raw from
unmet needs, unaddressed unhappiness,
my inconsolable me..
Most significant for my survival,
How can I make it
stay away for good,
protecting all my future sunny days?
