Dust Devil 

War Toys

A good-guy gun blows bloody holes

in a naughty toy's face

another kid hooked

on "justifiable retaliation"

learning to talk like addicted adults

loading their veins with righteous rage

to shoot up siblings avenging the past

and bleeding graffiti

on nursery walls

—Gretchen Nielsen
