Black Matilda Learns to Drive/to Shoot

by Justin Rogers

The arm is a wand.

See how the whole world moves

with one swing?

Feel the ​velocity when you

squeeze the grip? The shock of each loaded

gear laying your body on the ground.

What is more powerful than stepping

on the neck & watching a world

Whistle around in the pit of your knuckle?

You hear them sirens? See them flashing lights,

make sure they not in your rear view.

Remember,

they learned these tricks before you.
