VILLAINOUS REDUX

The gnashing of my teeth. The turning of anger in the pit of my stomach. The ebb of rage. The curbing of anger. The swallowing of pride. The self-destruction; the “bonzo”. The reconsideration of plans. The putting away of weapons. The cutting off of destructive impulses. The taking of deep breaths.

These are the actions of a villain.

This is the villainous being heroic.
