got in a fight with my car

as I was getting out
holding a bag of groceries
the door swung back
hit my arm hard
I drop the bag
and cursed loudly
I bent down to get the bag
the door came back and
cracked my head
I screamed
with my heat-swollen
feet and ankles
I began to kick the shit out of
the side of the car
leaving pretty little
dusted prints
of my flip flops
nothing was happening
so by the time I got to the wheel well
I shouted and kicked as hard
as I could
a dent was left
then it quickly popped back out
exploding my dusty flip flop print
into forgetfulness
I looked in the bag
the wine bottles were intact
I sighed
and called it a draw
