padding optional

all of a sudden it seems
a storm of animosity
is boiling up in mepadded cell.png
like i’m coming apart at the seams
or a rope or vine is uncoiling in me
and i’m just about to snap
just about to haul off & slap
this total stranger
for her rudeness
just about to burst
to rant or scream or curse
or tantrum my way
into a small cell
with or without
the padding
