Look into the BARREL

BY: Shelbi Henny

Lighting a match 
between my 
fingertips
we customize 
the underlining
against a heavy 
clip 
to lock back 
a frequency 
you knew me 
all too well
feelings
are way too 
real 
staining the 
complex chair 
lifting mid-motion 
air
permanently lead
me into the 
raptures 
the after effects 
mastering swords
of indifferent
withholdings
my life began 
triggering a 
pulse
under collisions
that lay under 
my pinky, ring, and
middle finger 
clutched
while my index
caresses you 
and my thumb subdued
to kiss the others
i was convulsing
to release you
while the bullet
controlled you
