Outside & Inside

…… —mass killings

outside the envelope of law
a man kills innocents directly
with the means available:
a Bushmaster .223 caliber
assault gun

inside the envelope of law
a  man kills innocents collaterally
with the means available:
an RQ-7 Shadow
assault drone

from sun to sun
the thinnest filament of definition
is strung between
two rolling tumbleweeds
in a void

by Jim Culleny
