Another me

Another me visited again this morning, some are welcome friends, some not; but this one unfamiliar; testy, touchy. 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. 6th place winner Fragmented Verse Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Emile Pinet
