an inch beyond a scream

it’s too quiet
tonight
deep in the night
somewhere past 3am
but well before
dawn

i long for that
silver red crease
slipping along
the eastern horizon
a thin line
that announces
life for another day

blood stains
have been painted
over
carpet replaced

i leave the bullet holes
as a reminder
that a perfect
life can end without
warning
