Little Boy

September 5, 2017

He threw a vibrant,

flashy tantrum:

shattered buildings,

flattened a city

burned clothing into skin.

His parents tried to

ignore him, but

he was too loud,

turning heads in

the grocery store.

They gave him this,

as consolation,

though he threw it on

the ground:

an oleander,

more powerful even

than his stomping foot.
