Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 28th of May.~ The entrance of anger.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 28th of May.
The entrance of anger.

There is a system
Of filtration
It cleanses the harshest
Of words away
The bitterest truths
Are caught up
In the bureaucracy
Of exchange.
Assumes a meaningful identity
As a responsible adult
In a new lexicon.
A buffer barring
The conscious progress
Of free flow,
Stemming the tide.
The onrush of blame
In a flush of remorse,
Blocking the drain of
Blind emotion
Until it overflows
Into a garden of remembrance.
The entrance of anger
Is an examination
In progress.
A jumbled passage
Of cluttered apology,
Stacked high
With unread returns
Whole treaties of excuses,
So much left unsaid
Never explained
In the brochure.
Anger is divisive
The truth of this
Is a lie,
An expression
Unspoken in common parlance.
It awaits the awakening
Of disappointment
To ignite its sorry soul.
Tearing it
From emotional torpor
Presenting it
With an opportunity to shine
In the limelight
Of its own standing
In the hierarchy
Of special circumstance.
When righteous anger
About to snap
Is barely held in check
By a fraying thread
Of good grace
And uncommon civility.
So much for
When the tired cord
Finally breaks.
