Hypnotic red

 

hypnotic-red

Hypnotic red

neck bleeding

trapped in rusty barbed wire

dismounting, noticing

wild-eyed as it dropped to knees

softly moaning

how my heart labored

to set it free.

With courage of a man

age 14,

pulling out trusty .22

believed

as I pulled the trigger

mercy had been served

with more hypnotic red.
