>Here was the prompt for Day 19: “…today’s prompt is to write an angry poem. That is, a poem about someone or something that gets angry. Could be a person, animal, or even them there angry clouds. As usual, I’m excited to see which unexpected directions y’all take with this prompt.” Read more at: April PAD Challenge: Day 19

“How Anger Comes to Me”

It comes to me scowling

A leaping cheetah

Over my picket fence

It shakes me up like madness

By my shoulders

Rolling its red-coal eyes

It kicks me about violent

With boots at my butt

Deadening my hard skin

It bares the fangs of poison

Bites and claws

Spilling blood at my temples

It comes trampling my poetry

Wringing hands wiping its brows

Stretching the livid vowels in ‘angry’

A and Y as if nothing mattered in between!

    >Superbly created angry creature! I am sure your real anger is more contained … milder. Smile.
