I keep my emotions in bottles on a shelf in my room.
Each of a different volume and size.
Lined up by color in rainbow order.

Not mixing.

Never mixing.

Each bottle screwed tight.
Closed
Organized
Standing still on the shelf
as I try to
forget about their existence.

I turn around for 5 seconds and I am
soaked
with the liquid from every bottle.
Red, orange, green, blue, purple
erupt
and the only evidence a blue wrapper with the letters

M E N T O S

And like diet coke, it didn’t take much for my emotions to splatter on every surface.
Like diet coke, I exploded.
Like diet coke, I lost
control.

You slipped a Mentos into each of
my bottles of emotions,
took a picture and video,
and left the room for
someone else
to clean up.
