LASER
(1/15/10)


he seemed
distraught

hands
and eyes
fluttering about
both looking
for a place
to rest

I repeated
my request
slowly
and
deliberately

the added
input
only increased
his confusion
and agitation

at times
neither
patience
cooperation
nor compassion
can do
the trick

finally
I lost it

loudly
and
crudely

the transaction
was suddenly
magically
completed

a little
finely directed
anger
can be
an amazing
motivator

use
sparingly
