Texas Towers Sniper


Whitman, so abused
by an authoritarian father
demoniacally driven to succeed
failure freed the demon
his father had installed into his son’s soul
son releases anger towards his father
sniper slaughtering strangers
slaughtering until he was slaughtered
resolving nothing
save a lasting picture
authoritarian power carries the burden
of seduction
of ultimate power
over a child
over a mate
over a city
ultimate the world
(unless you believe
Star Wars)
