“Bang!” Said the gun
The Story of an Evolution.
“Bang! Bang! Bang!” Waving a stick – gun
“You shot me down”, in slow motion
“Bang! Bang! Bang!”
I said: “I’m dead!”
And it makes you smile,
Although I can tell your head
Isn’t completely at rest,
As you give me a slightly worried look.
A body hits the ground, somewhere.
A body elevates itself
Leaving the shallow realm of the half-gods behind,
To enter the wild unknown.
Leaving the one-eyed and the blind
Retelling your story as if they knew
Why you let yourself drown,
In the lights calling you…
Candles, bare lightbulbs, flames, neon,
Sunlight, headlights, starlight, moonlight…
Full moon lit night.
And that’s the last thing you saw of this world.
That’s where your next chapter begins…
