buttons & caps

pushing buttons
getting under one’s skin
setting off a fuse

bottling up a
short temper within

snapping
busting a cap
raising hell –
better dodge that bullet –

cold shoulders,
silent stare

when they say
all is well –
it isn’t,

because
they watch their own
blood pressure rise
behind their heated eyes
breaking points
slamming doors

people wonder
why?
