Gun Rack

At the crossroads, a stoplight
beams bright red—as red as

the blood of those who have
been taken. As red as screaming

infant faces stung by the salt of a
hundred thousand tears. Streaming

lazily through a windshield, blood-light
broken boldly by the visage of a sticker

reading Make America Great Again,
and by the silhouette of granddaddy’s

gun rack.
