OUTBURST

OUTBURST

 

Arrayed in guise of temperament

a savage burst of anger wells,

its tapers kindling discontent

propelling into fires that burn

to claim dominion of the mind.

 

But as the deflagration dies,

amid the ashes of abstraction,

unremitting thoughts are forged

in self-fulfilling prophecies.
