THIS IS A POEM ABOUT THE RANKS OF THE VANQUISHED AND THE HEADS OF FRIGHTENED OSTRICHES 10.11.17

10.11.17

 

step off

 

 

realize the fall
and join the ranks
of the vanquished.
we’ve talked this point
to death. treat words
like the heads of
frightened ostriches.
treat actions like bullets
loaded in the
chamber of a gun
aimed directly
at the cerebrum.
if you don’t intend
to pull the trigger
put the gun away
and take a nap.
