AR-15

bang, bang, bang, click
jammed
 useless in my arms

he struggled to clear it
returned to me
but for a single shot
useless in my arms

the target gaped a hole
down and to the right
the sights are off
or is it my aim

a dozen or so sheathed lead
one-at-a-time
rapid fire
bang, bang, bang, click
jammed
 useless in my arms

silver dollar sized
the target’s gaping hole
the lead absorbed
by the shredded rubber

target practice
or
inexplicably
flesh
lifeless in my arms
