Face-Off

sniper
Begins with kneeling
leads to walking
trying to
“do”
as well as
“talking”will i stand my ground
when the salvos begin?will i doubt progress
and cave back into sin?

arrows whizzing by

and what about the bad guys
dressed in black trenchcoats
with the evil grins?

reckon…
i’m in for a reckoning

…remember them?

will i pee my pants?

will their bullets
make me dance…
again?

while in the backgound

inventive machinations

juggernauts

of the enemy’s design

lumber by?

two armies
face off
in…
“the battlefield
of the mind”

lock and load
one last gulp
shake off fear

in the crosshairs
flip a baseball cap around
singled out…
close one eye
bring into focus

the first one drops
without a sound

my hand stops trembling
clean shot…
straight through
what should have been
a heart

 

incredibly he stands
tears in his eyes
desperately staggers
towards me
drops to his knees
and in stammered speechsays…”don’t shoot…
i give up!”

“i was just…
trying to make my way
over to your side
you just…

shot…

a…

friend…”

(ungh…)

God Bless
