Love Holds Anger

by Carmen H Gray

My heart is so big

It can consume your anger

And his and hers and theirs, too

Give it to me

I will pump it through

The dark velvet territory

Churn it and spin it

Reshape it

And give it back to you

Melted, fluid like honey

To drip through your

Pretty fingers

Too elusive for you

To hold any more
