Tried

for Dorner

let’s drop it at the end of a long fight, i tried

a do not disturb sign hung and sliding

off the handle.  it can’t hold a place

in the perpendicular. at the end,  just one man

this participle has been through a whirlwind

the toss tumble of the sheets and having been clean

they will never find you innocent just because

they will never find you

but jewels have come out like steak: bleeding

little tidbits of the family sad about the fire

the cabin, the car, the rage and the stolen things

including justice in the smoke, and silver linings

but they won’t let it rest at ashes, must get at

the single gunshot wound to the head

head bowed with ashes, I fast and root

for openings, a soft point, some little thing
