Runner-up

The black smoke rising
sealed my fate.
I would not be
the dean of letters
or even his water boy.
So I went off,
like every damaged American
and shot my way through
the crowded mall –
A semi-automatic
held like Helen in my hands.
A viperous march
through skin and bone.

I drop the last large magazine,
a pistol takes my breath away.

 (Runner-up)
