Anger

Day 288 prompt: Emotions

Popcorn!

(Photo credit: veggiefrog)

festering anger
smells like burnt microwave popcorn

the popping stopped awhile ago
but you didn’t notice in time
so now you’re keeping the bag shut

plunging the hot, puffy bag
deep into the garbage can
you hope
that foul smell
will not escape

but it always does

at least a little bit
