The sun looks angry to me since my sister died.
“It’s so bright,” Mitch said as the sun filled the coffee shop with golden light.”
“The sun looks angry to me since my sister died. I know that sounds weird, but it looks different—angrythrough the trees. That’s how I feel when I see the sun set through the trees, angry.” Mitch now looked intently at Joe’s face. The description of anger was mirrored on his face. So compelling was this story even Mitch felt an uncontrollable rage. He clenched his fist for about thirty seconds and then reached across the table as his hand opened slowly. Mitch put his right hand on Joe’s left shoulder and for the first time that day he looked Joe square in the eyes: “You’ve got a right to be angry.”
