Last Communion

“I’ll fix them,” he thought,
fixing them in the scope’s crosshairs. 

Mere seconds later, the lesson
ended. No one asked questions.

He was, he told himself,
finally and fully understood.

He had spoken; if not eloquently,
at least indisputably, unequivocally.

His audience was hushed, breathless.
Sirens in the distance sang him home.

He prepared to eat his own words.
