Write a poem about pet peeves.
Little things that annoy you – perhaps they are stand-ins for bigger problems, perhaps they are nothing more.
Chicken sizzles in the skillet
Machine gun fire roars
I begin to feel it
I flip the chicken.
Peals of laughter down the hall
There’s a thin layer of dust on the wall
There’s a pile of dishes in the sink
The gaming chair creaks
“Babe, get me a drink!”
I pop the Dr. Pepper tab with a clink
The puppy pissed the floor
I’m drowning in this house
Children are annoying
There I said it
Aware of unconditionality
So have no fear
To ask for comfort
To say they hate you
At the mere denial of sugar
Or for the thought crime of feeling bored
After the 17th repetition of that shitty game
But an annoying friend you can ditch
A pain-in-the-arse sibling you pinch
Over coffee you can bitch about a colleague who is self aware as a...

The clock reads 5:51
Not a customer in sight
Everything for closing done
Almost out of work for the night
No cars driving by
No phone calls to be heard
The deli slicer so clean
It was almost absurd
Then a customer walks in
I think nothing of it
He asks for some sliced meats
And I want to tell him to shove it
What can I get for you?
I ask insincere
The deli is dark
It’s closed, and that’s cle...
What happened to the old adage
What you see… Is what you get?
Yes…it’s one of my biggest pet peeves,
As it causes my skin to crawl…
When you change like the weather,
depending on who you’re around
or who you’re with.
I’m sure you don’t even know your
acting differently, you’re probably
and that’s fine too.
I’ll probably never tell you it bothers me,
No…I’ll just let you ...
Futile scratching mid sentence
telltale blot of ink
Bleeding from a pocket
Bottom of the purse hell scape
Icky slick plastic
Gnawed pen caps
Teeth marred barrels
A wayward spring, cap, thrust
Handful of broken bits and bobs
Instead of ideas inked in long languid linking loops of letters...
