The Finger That Pulled The Trigger

Her heart broke

On the porch that day

The man tells her about the shooting

When her son finally gathered the courage

To talk to the girl from across the street

Her baby boy was shot

In the heart

She fells a phantom bullet in hers

From the day she thought she would fall apart

And yet

The car in front of her

Has a bumper sticker

Probably plastered on with hands dripping metaphorical blood

It reads

Guns don’t kill people People kill guns

What does that mean?

She thinks

The bullet shot from the gun from the finger that pulled the trigger from the body that was the boy from the mind that was so broken she took him into her arms and they sobbed together

She could blame the man who sold it to the boy

Or his family

As broken as his now healing mind

And yet

The gun played the factor that took him from her

Guns don’t kill people People kill guns
