when it isn’t what I want

screaming at the internet for its iffy signal
the sky for its rain on a full line
at the people in the adverts            the man on the news
beats screaming at the stuck drawer

you can grab a stuck drawer          shake it
drag it             wrench                       and feel the wood scream back
before it sprays string          ………..scissors          otherstuff
and maybe an oh-that’s-where-it-is         ………. unintended gift

coffee could fill the gap in the broadband weather
or this
though plugging gaps connects with screaming
don’t you find?
