You buy a gun to write a poem
and you know you are getting
way out of the line,
no matter how peculiar
your idea of a metaphor is.
Readers will think
you're really trying to kill them,
otherwise you're gonna shoot yourself.
Did you ever think about shooting a poem?
Or the contrary,
to give a Smith and Wesson to a poem?
A harmful group of words pointing
directly between your eyes
as you try to get the deepest meaning of death.
