BullshitTo Jonathan Penton's previous piece     Do you define yourselfTo Jonathan Penton's next piece

What can I do but scream
brandish my fingernails like the
ancient weapons they are?

Surely anything worth doing
is worthy of pitching a fit

And surely,
the necessity of communicating this thing to you
is worth losing a little dignity
a little
public sanity

It's not even that I'm in pain
(although I most certainly am)
and of course
it was never really rage

It's that these moments
are passing so quickly
and we have no way to
commemorate them
but by a slap in the face
