Trifle

A boy named Trifle put all his negative energy inside a box then he put the box in a hole in the wall. He spent the better part of five consecutive weekends scouring flea markets and thrift shops looking for the perfect picture to hang over the hole. His negative energy emerged whenever he looked at the hole, which was often because he worked from home and didn't have any friends. It only went away when he looked for a picture to hang.
