What the Gun Eats #29

The frame is lightning.
The darkness is a mass.
Center mass is a target

& since we grew up
requiring others, the center
is where most of the people

die when we force
the frame to splinter,
to prey among our mass.

What the Gun Eats #30

The blood
smells

& this
attracts

more blood?
The brown

puddles
attract

more brown
puddles?

These
elegies

are dis-
gusting.
