Weapon Selection


Watching you,


selecting your weapon.

No choice more important

than what you are

about to say or do.

Will it be quick?

Something that strikes

with precision?

Will it be brutal,

like a bludgeon

from behind?

Will it be cataclysmic,

like fire from the sky?

A smile plays on your lips

as you decide.

One moment passes,

another as well.

Soon you turn,

hands empty,

but your eyes so full.

Smiling with a grace

I thought impossible

and you bring out

a lesson

in forgiveness.
