Angry Summer Sonnet

Do not put your fist
through drywall or glass.
Do not screech frustration
behind shuttered windows.

Knock on neighbor’s door.
Anger leads to action
and action to change.
Bring everyone you know.

Punch the sky.
Let the summer boil.
Make lightning fear
the thunder of our voices.

Raise those fists in defiance
and hit the streets!
