Throw Your Gunz

entry picture

Idolize the great with the men and the heart thornless,

Canonize the snake at the end of the dark forest,

Skipping when we jump just to grow some balls and have a life,

Sitting on a stump in a coiled ball of sacrifice,

Bidding on the wrong division, giving up a mom’s decision to weigh it with the rope friend,

Hissing at the competition, pissing on the lawn envisioned to take it on the nose then,

Idiotic leader ‘-isms’ praying for a war if it’s Dracula and Annabella,

Symbiotic sprinkler systems spraying on the spores and the spatula of salmonella,

No one runs when they die and luck is lost with the care of devil-loving madness,

Throw your guns to the sky and hunt the dogs with a bear like rebels hunting fascists,

Turning battles like a broken lens when mercy grapples the roses to bleed in the autumn or the breeze,

Burning candles at both ends and learning Sappho and Moses will meet at the bottom of the seas.


Seal it up to wear it out and stupefy an enemy,

Build it up to tear it down and eulogize the memory,

Fill it up with errant sound if two devise the enmity,

Killers gruff that never drown in a suit of ice and energy,

Feel the love and mirror bound to chew the rice with Hennessey,

Militants with weathered crowns to utilize their weaponry,

Stay out of hissing mouths if tyrants fear this Jesus,

Lay out the bricks of Hell so I can tear the pieces,

I slay through the souls of the soldiers in this house of hat tricks,

I break through the mold like a molar in the mouth of madness,

A lot of peddled rhymes as I bear the rod to fill the bucket once more,

Rob the Devil blind and I swear to God I’ll kill this motherfucker.

Ironically enough, those were my favorite lines to write of this piece outside of the first two, and last two lines.

I'm always a sucker for reeling in a reader with a catchy line, and ending on the same note.

That's my bread and butter as I'm sure you could tell by now.

Thank you, Taylor. Your opinion is always validated and appreciated.😁

First four lines of the second stanza are simply brilliant...It is like an internal tug of war first one and then another emotion battling. Love it. Always inspired by your poetry. 💕

My heartfelt gratitude, Anya!

You're one of the only ones that actually cares what I write about, so for that I thank you once again.

I might as well sign the next one:

"For Anya" !😉
