Little things
build up,
then I explode.
Leaving milk in a cup,
cookie crumbs in a bowl.
Overprotective shield,
I’m 16 years old.
No effort on projects,
no effort at all.
That bit of mascara
by my eyebrow bone.
When the well runs dry,
so does my patience.
Having $1.64 left on a gift card.
When the internet won’t load.
Slow people in the hallway,
I have somewhere to go.
Little things build up,
then I explode.
