Bitter Woman

Her smile conceals savage fury of infinite intensity. Look closely enough and you’ll see bitterness escaping from the upturned corners of her mouth. Beware the simmering anger, hidden beneath her engaging grin, capable of erupting in full-throated rage. In an instant, the acrimony growing inside her could escape in an explosive release; heat so great that it would not boil oceans but set them ablaze. Do you see her? Do you see the woman standing in line at the grocery store? Do you see her at the post office counter? Do you see her waiting to cross the street while she’s walking her dog? Do you see her staggering out of the bar just after midnight? She is the one who could end the world for someone with the misfortune to cross her at the wrong moment.
