Hold the cold weight steady
almost not metal but still heavy
balanced like virility
easy touch deadly
doesn’t understand unready
loaded safety off double indemnity.

Matte black
defense same as attack
fiction is as fact
act or react
brass pack won’t redact once it’s shot
a hole is what you’ve got.

Fit cool grip to hand
what’s to understand except
potential energy
firing cap lucidity
conservation of death kinetic
power equal and opposite to will
shoot miss scare don’t care shoot hit kill.

editors note:

When resolve is cold as the gun, cold as this poem, we’ve all cause to fear. Run! Hide! – mh
