Weapons of war,that’s what they’re for.Their bullets kill.Pretend they don’tand people do.War veteransand hunters alikeschool kids huddled in corners;no one is safe anymore. (© 2022 AC)

New Love

I felt the future in our locked lipsthrough your crimson eyes shone a radiant sky,hoping you’ll never say goodbye. (© 2022 AC)
