    TWO THINGS
    by Brigid Durham
    from Home on the Range


    Two things move under night sky
    the thing that came to kill, and I

    He, released from prison to roam
    and I, peaceably headed to home

    He carries a knife and drug addled sense
    seeing just prey, without defense

    I detect movement, intuitive fear
    and put my hand to pistol near

    Worried, alone in that gloomy blight
    above the fear, I prepare to fight

    He hears the click of a chambered round
    fleeing quickly to hunt safer ground

    No predator dares go hunting for me
    for I am armed, that makes me free

    I holster my pistol and slowly stand down
    heading towards home in a dark, sleeping town

    For there are two things that will not die
    my right to carry, and this night, I
