79. Feral

Where

Is the rage in Page?

It is not

That anger was not

Tolerated;

It did not 

Exist.

Was not

Acknowledged;

Never modeled.

No passionate arguments

Raised voices

Or fits.

Only humor

And strength—

Volumes

Of silence. 

This I learned

From you

Who now 

Unfiltered; unrestrained

Bare your teeth 

And growl. 

Visceral

And effective;

I crave 

To do this too.
