Revolution | by Lucy A Evans

Feet in step
from bitter,
snow brogues, kick-rhythms
evaporate.

Replaced by
a shaved step-
father’s smoothed semi-
automatic

carpentry.
Palm to gun-
stock in your space; a
territory.

Still it was
rhythmic and
artful, kitten scrat
technology.

Chest rises,
inhale all
known knowledge, exhale
application.

Exhale wood,
breathe in black
powder from bore shells,
conflagrating.

Take the shot,
spark the pile,
improvise the piped
morality.

Thirteen years
of age and
planning a baby
revolution.
