A Little Girl’s Gun

The little girl is waving a gun around

She has good aim she says
because she can speak

her sentences are not fragmented or torn apart

but she is running around the yard waving that gun around

using her new tongue to curse the things that haunt her silence

She is just waiting on that one thing that could keep her steady

then she will aim the gun at everything that is still moving

“A perfect aim”, she will say
and no one will disagree.
