Red Cap

Twist the red cap
Tighter
And tighter
Then shake up
The body
Until emotions
Hiss and fizzle
So the next
Man
That undresses
Unscrews
The red cap
They howl out
Explode and erupt
Every issue
Every problem
Plasters upon him
Sticky, sugary
Each neurotic tendency
Every dramatic flaw
The psychosis
Of one woman’s pain
Foams out
In half sentences
And shaky hands
Trying to find
To grab
The red cap
To bottle up
Every tense moment
And not let go
