other way to move blood (poemoff 2)

other way to move blood (poemoff 2)

a sharp knife
can prick
or stab. you must
be careful or
beware. a gun can
shoot bullets, but
they can miss
tiny targets
(the heart is small).

i tap the window pane
with my forehead. The
glass is cool and damp.
one crack can
slice my finger,
oozing blood from the
shard. sometimes

i sit alone and
think of you.




The title of this poem comes from "OR HEART" by Zack.

This one is downright ingenious. I am much impressed, primarily because of the following lines:

a gun can
shoot bullets, but
they can miss
tiny targets
(the heart is small).


Cheers.
