hollow (point)

today I dodged a bullet 

twenty something ammunition 

disguised as stale carnations

the kind of flowers 

given when sentiments

are especially hollow (point)

today he jumped the gun

twelve gauge blanks

disguised as sweet caresses

the kind of fingers

given when intentions

are especially dry (fire)

oh, most fortunate hesitation

blessing me with 

high caliber clairvoyance

click click, bang

as if to say

girl, get yourself a grip

  1. This was a cracking read! Love that tripping rhythm & you have a natural gift for making such memorable snapshots seem so real and vivid. ❤ Great twist on the relatable frustration of insincere gestures.
