The Gap

Don’t shoot!

Stop the violence,

Stop the killing.

Don’t waste your time with gods,

Or clerics on the greasy pole,

Or warped ideology

Be yourself;

Lay down your arms,

A universe unexplored in the rustle

Even in short bursts, it quenches my thirst

a spec of dust, a grain of sand…

yet cradled in the Master’s hand.

The innocent and helpless stand no chance

Against the savage tastes of hawk and owl.


Upstairs, forbidden lovers take the plunge;

Their beads of sticky sweat adorn the bed.

She’s fast asleep while he boosts up his pack;

Outside waits a procession of the dead.


The hunters beat the heavin...
