The wrong-ness
Resounds
Reverberates
Resonates
again, again, again, again,
again, again, again
again
Try to stop up your ears and
Your humanity shivers along anyway
Vibrations deep in the being
A molecular reality
This image-bearing
If you are too far
Away from the blow
To feel your ears ringing or see
The blood pooling
Still the sound rings out somewhere
In your body
Air pushing back on air
Traversing the space between
Will you listen and
What will you call those shots
