The Illusion Of The Rifleman - Poem by douglas scotney

Up high on a mount,
in the face of all,
parts are small
that loom large
through a hole in a wall
and telescope fun
into what can be shot
from the sight of your gun.

Thanks Zac and Dolores for the 7th floor view last night and the illusion that something can appear bigger than it is.

    Hey. I like that this poem is one that I have to think about, but would it be possible to maybe make it a bit longer so that I can see more of what is going on in its context? (Report) Reply
