Poetry: “A Girl Buries a Gun”

after the gunfight she plants that bloodied seed, she grows
the dystopian Yggdrasil. the new creatures flock to roots
that calcify into the ancestors of their dreams. After the
gunfight she plants that bloodied seed, she grows the
dystopian Tree of Knowledge. tomorrow’s Eves
crawl with gory throats, having screamed down
previous pinnacles of falsity. after the
gunfight she plants that bloodied
seed, she grows six bullets
but she will only
need one.
