Dodging bullets

By L. Stewart Marsden

No less lethal

for having been dodged, avoided, slipped, nearly whatevered …

the missiles whiz past in slow-motioned agonizing closeness

to disappear somewhere over there — or out there — or back there.

And returning to that moment when all was interrupted …

when all was suddenly frozen in brittle two-dimensioned planes …

remains the thought, the worry, the paranoia that

from over there — out there —back there

another bullet will come.
