Resentment

Heart,

I implore you
right now
to keep the peace.

Stop rocking
precariously perched boats,

or breathing down
wraith necks.

Watch the fish
leap their graceful arcs
over the tumultuous waters

and keep all fingers
safely anchored
on the barriers

if you may,

but do not yield
even that once
to the invisible hand.

Better to hold it all in, then be savaged by rampaging tigers.
