just a little bump

28 Oct

when does just a little bump

become a hill?

when does a little bit of curiosity

become a view to a kill?

it’s the little irritations that mount

up and up

until they dominate our lives

making us anxious and angry

some unspecified malaise

a blanket of shame

just a little bump

i can step right over it

but someday that bump

becomes the mountain

that obscures the sun
