CALL TO ARMS

Brain
Hot-wired
Pumped with grammar
Decoding hidden messages
Targets     Directions
Eyes
Round & flat
Body
Tight like wire
Electric currents crossed
Causing herky-jerky movement
Bad reactions
Daydreams haunted
Buzzing
Drooling
Tongue stuck to frozen cup
Lisping incendiary clap-trap
To stop conspiracies from hatching
Maggots
Buzzing

Pundits spew “not responsible”
Wired-brain sucks up distilled hate
Replacing his mask     He faces the enemy
Unzips the gun between his legs
Hard & cold
Aims true
Shoots
Snap the wire
Stop the buzz

Death doesn’t matter in the abstract
He is sucked dry
Seeking relevance or salvation
Dead & wounded at his feet
His greatest moment      His triumph
No appeals to god can cancel the deed
He is god
Witnessing human enmity
