Soul Gun

 

Soul Gun wonders how you reclassify the pathways to Everytown USA
Confuses itself for being in the train business
Instead of the transportation business,
Keeps trying to hammer down that steel
Soul Gun wants to bargain hunt
But keep its moniker without having to make an investment
Soul Gun only looks out for Soul Gun
It plays the “understanding others” role frequently
There are systems for everything
The dark leaves
The dark leaves
Soul Gun only believes in that which is tentative
Suspicious of those stars it knows are always up there

 

 


Soul Gun

 

Soul Gun always attracts the wrong kind of affection
Soul Gun moves forward, glancing up at inopportune moments
The train door as it is closing
The baited breath after the argument has ended
Soul Gun finds talking comes more easily several paces away from the pressure points
Several paces inverted away from the cuckold
Soul Gun thinks attention is a funny thing
Even funnier to command
Peace is apparently a thing to get before it gets you
Grace is something you can afford others but sometimes always shouldn’t
Soul Gun is learning
