day 24

did you see
the shooting?
the man-they say
he had no arms
he ran-the video
caught it all

stumbling-wounded
antelope
loping towards
away-or home
maybe just
away

there are arms
holding guns
tazers-hard to
tell in the bright
sunshine

there is death
no screams-
only animal
grunts-falls
mournful howls

they say-
he had arms
they say-
he has none

does it matter
then?
