NaPoWriMo #2: ‘Angrier’

It’s getting warmer.


(poem-appropriate image. For we are living in a visual world, but I am a written-word girl)

By Maggie McGinity

Apples are the best angry fruit
Piccolo is the angriest flute
In winter I wither waiting for roots
Summer I sizzle, smothered in my soot

Anger’s just fear, fear is just sorrow
Torn-up twists in all your tomorrows
Knowing they’re just like your yesterdays
Problems and poor me’s pushed into play

Boxed-in boxer, trapped in society
Presenting calm in piety
Though I’ve run so fast, I’ve run so far
There’s something I’ve missed
The take-away twist
Silence, and someone to spar”


“This is what we do. Not so much argue as joust, in jest. We can’t stop pushing and pulling the taffy of words and concepts.” 
-“The Twoweeks” by Larry Duberstein

“There are some people who like nothing better than a good, regular quarrel.” 
-“Indiscretion” by Jude Morgan

“The silence is the worst part of any fight, because it’s made up of all the things we wish we could say, if only we had the guts.” 
-“Gray” by Pete Wentz
