How Angry Am I?

 I had other plans for this one, building it as a scaffold for something else.  But it seemed to be done enough without the additions.

I was listening to an NPR interview with the author Claire Messud while I was making it.  The opening line of her new book is "How angry am I?" and is probably being asked rhetorically, because the narrator, a thwarted artist is really angry.

In the case of the small people who live in my house, it is a question that often needs an answer.  Trivial frustrations can lead to apocalyptic fury, but one never knows just how furious any given fury will become.  And by one, I mean the furious person, not just the bystander.
Although fury is infectious, so perhaps there is no bystander.
