The excise blown

Today there were shootings
all over, all over and again.
Again more and more shootings.
It is a math grown silly
& pregnant with men
who, tomorrow, will venture
out more and more shooting
others and others like them.
Tomorrow there were shootings,
so I said to my wife whose brother
ventured out more and more
after the daylight taxes,
swinging his grief into darkening molasses.

  1. Good use of repetition. It builds and echoes. Love the last jarring image. Thank you for sharing this.

  2. Thank you.
