 Michael H. Levin: Poems and Prose  

I AM A BULLET

no missile wings as straight

or with such fierce velocity,

humming in tune with siblings

from our chambered hive --

steel bees, swarming blued space

until we meet what dares dispute

our flight and bounce, transformed --


tumbling through organs

at compressive speed

shredding veins; unseen

unless we carve an exit wound.

But don’t blame me --

unchained resentment, black-clad,

is my baptistry.

Versions first published in Rat's Ass Review (Summer 2020) and The Federal Poet, Vol. LXXV No. 2 (Fall 2019)
