pent up

©2022 Michael Raven

the catharsis stemming
from slamming a payphone
receiver into its cradle

[r e p e a t e d l y]

will never be known by
this generation


maybe this alone explains
all the pent up anger
in our virtual world:
no constructive outlets
for the frustration
we feel

    1. Thanks, Ray. They built those receivers like tanks. Kinda miss that whole: check to see how much hair product and earwax was on the phone, then wiping it clean on something before dropping your quarter into the slot.
