Flash Poetry: “Ammunition”

I am afraid
that when the time comes
I will not have enough ammunition
to protect her
even though
ammo is cheap.
If words could be locked and loaded
every woman could
raze the world
a hailstorm of bullets
made up of “good intentions”
and “sluts.”
When persisting
and resisting
are frowned upon
what else can
you do
but defend?

If you enjoy my poetry, my first chapbook Wayward: Poetry for Monsters, Muses, and Other Deviants is currently only .99 cents– but hurry! The price will go up to $1.99 after a few days, before returning to $2.99.
