Thoughts at Work

i see a young boy

angry in the restroom:

 

he throws aggression

at a stall door

 

and i wonder why

 

the comfort to break

free is found in smaller

places,

 

what if anything

can help him breathe,

 

or feel like other kids

his age who yell

in triumph and

not rage.
