sniper lesson (4)

draw the enemy
draw the enemy out.

who said any of this
would be easy?

no muscle flinch,
word. silence.

still. still.
still. the adder within.

but listen to hiss.
the coolness of his skin.

do not feed
never feed him

strike. feel
nothing

only the satisfaction
of remorselessness.
