My feet pace a shiny tiled
hospital floor
tapping sounds in sync
with a racing heart

Eyes roll up and down
like slot machines
return to stare at a TV
in a waiting room

I watch your ten year old grandson
on a gurney
wheeled into an operating room
upshot of handling your target shotgun

Your guilt hidden
in a drawer full of bullets
An accident!
what do you mean accident?
