day 2

The LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry, and why has your countenance fallen?  If you do well, will you not be accepted?  And if you do not do well, sin is lurking at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it."  Genesis 4:6-7

stuffing our arms
      into anger's sleeves,
   and yanking up bitterness's
         zipper, we
stomp out of the
      house,
   slamming the door
   behind us, never noticing
Short Coming nipping
            at our heels, until
   we trip and fall
               flat
on our souls.
