Art Class

America’s paint brush is the gun. Its violent expression of blood is only abstract after the fact when, body removed, the outline of wasted youth remains on the ground in life’s final sprawl that will never again arise for a morning shower or make a late sprint to class or inscribe a blue book with thought the least of which to a mother and father somewhere is too much to miss.
