last page

 we shiver from a touch, withdraw

re-draw, hand always a second from holster to face

is this a standoff or a mirror? what are we scared of?

arms spread, not for embrace but grapple

keep them from getting in, keep them out

and yet, we find their imprints appear

like lint in our pockets.
