You being American can do nothing
but dwell in the world of guns.
There are those who say
to be inspired is to be inspiring.
Self defense and good reasons
are not inspiring.
Who are these people, even on my country,
who release pigs in bush just to shoot
who will break down steel gates
for the gratification of killing
what they pretend can escape?
Can anyone escape, when a gun
is an extension of
an outstretched hand?
