can someone pass the pistol?

he said what i wrote wasn't logical
'you can't throw a fight at someone'
'you can't press your lips against a dream'
i pushed my teeth
into the gala apple i was eating,
severed the nerve by the seed
tasted the pain of its core
and said
not with that attitude

it's easy to write about something that happens soon after it happens more than it is to write about something that happened 15 years ago.
