For you, a thousand times over.

he said,

i'm going to cripple your weapon,

empty the magazine of your gun



poured out 

all of the lead from my pencil.

no, he

does not lie. i tried

to salvage my courage 

(my elements of speech); ended up

smudging the floor with

my discontented graphite,

left piles of grey ash

wrecked with silver

specks that harrow my

thoughts with their promise

of beauty.


he said,

this ammuntion is mine,

you have no right to these bullets;


stole all of my words
