perfect angel
or mistake. big dumb
or slight intellectual.
war cry or
blue honorific,


you find this
hard to follow? consider
how a bullet feels
upon learning its trajectory
has made it infamous


if you are
not yet numb from talking about it,
if you are not yet dumb about
only talking about it


tell us:

what should we say this time?
how do we wrap this one in words

beyond so
and again

so tightly
it shall be bound away
as the last?
