the Bullet Tin Scripture

Sit back and chill

If you wanna do something
listen to the children
the child

if you only have one inside.

I’m gonna call these bits n pieces ‘bullet tins’.
Why not bullets?
Cause bullets cause harm and there is no other,

so forget mother father sister and brother.
If there is no other
who is being harmed?

Next question. Is there a who hoo hoo?

I love how words create images
that hoo and open and close doors,
yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Colors so bright, 
there is no light,
all is one and one is love.

Trees root deep
in a dying earth.
One word may bring a smile.

Words. I love them.
OK, back to business.
Why not just bullet?

The way I see it is
you choose open or closed
inside, outside, your life.

Tin is just symbolic.
Do you see
hear what I’m saying?

I shoulda been a preacher.
A fire breathin’, heavy sweatin’
money makin’ kinda preacher.

Let’s move on from tins.

The impulse is very strong.
Convert hands to nubs.
We’d still kill each other.

We been killing the other
since we arrived here.
Are guns really the issue?

I think not! You?

Soon we will have armor-piercing
self-guided dead center
cross-your-heart & no hope left.

Fire, eat wood.
Such simple beauty
has me crying.

The way I see it is
you choose open or closed
inside, outside, your life.
