Another me visited again this morning,
some are welcome friends, some not; but this one
Must be careful, take care, angry ones are stronger,
seeking domination of the others.
Now people, familiar strangers; don't look!
Too late; inevitably, staring eyes meet eyes.
The words spew out, red hot rivets
"Are you gawking at me, you jerk?"
Blood on my hands,
pain in my head.
