Three micro poems

by Darren C. Demaree

 

 

 

 

WHAT THE GUN EATS #112

 I’m saying even if
we are commanded
to die by the physics
of the stars, or an un-
seen thumb, we don’t
have to hemorrhage
to please any number
in any sky. We can
end as whole people.

 

WHAT THE GUN EATS #113

I walk
to create
the hot rush

the bullet
wants to
emulate.

How cold
that spinner
was before

it had me
to chase
down.

 

 

WHAT THE GUN EATS #114

I used to lust
for pools. I’m
afraid to get in

them now.
I’m afraid of
all that red.
