A Rant

I want to write a poem unlike all my others.

I don’t want to write more ‘poetic’ poetry,

Both overthought and overwritten

Composed of soft images and delicate words

To express depression or euphoria.

No, I want to write an angry poem,

Full of cold consonants that cut the throat

Unnecessary Capitals for Unnecessary Emphasis

To SHOUT without even speaking a word,

To slam my hand against paper

Rather than my hand against a wall.

There is so much anger in these sprawled words.

Bubbling emotions about to reach boiling point

100 degrees, or even 100 days of irritation.

Frustration, exasperation, vexation, indignation

And an overall inability to honestly express myself.

And yet all I can do is write another poem.
