Elevating Frustration by M. A. Istvan Jr.

The new father clearing tree limbs
strewn throughout his lawn by the gale
could figure out ways to unhook one
from the tangle of others. But sometimes
one needs to go at them as a brute,
shoving and jerking, getting all
worked up. The threat of self-injury
makes this bloody show akin to tugging
at the drawer jammed from within
by the tangle of spatulas and tongs.
