You are always right.

Anger eats a hole in your heart

you try to fill it with straw and denial
but teeth push up through the edges of the hole
and feed on the pumping muscled flesh
widening your vitriol
feeding on the bile you spit against
anyone’s apology

refusing to accept responsibility for wrongs
perceived and real
your heart feeds on
you did nothing
and don’t understand why
other people widen their berth, stifled laughter turning to
pity as you pass, your chin turned up in defiance
face twitching against your heart’s dying pleas

you deserve so much more
