The angry girl never had any reason
to squeeze the t
s from her eyes and
scream until she felt her throat would tear
other than that
she felt like it.
So she did it anyway.
And didn’t try to make sense of it.
Not so the angry woman.
drag along her teeth
and scrape the surface of her brain
but instead of screaming and crying
now she says
There’s no reason for it…
But that doesn’t mean
it isn’t there.
So she shuts herself away
from the people who don’t deserve
s r y
from the eruption of her rage
and she tries to talk it out of her with reasoning,
and to l
k it out of her fingertips,
and to blow it away with feigned indifference…
she’s not going to scream and cry
there’s no reason to,
and it’s not how civilised people behave,
and she can’t justify it,
she’ll just become even angrier as she sits in
reflects on the norms of society holding her inside her own skin
Why the hell shouldn’t she?
