sniper lesson (5)

fire team partner

can I trust your ears
can I trust your eyes
can I trust you’re wired
to belly earth
watch, watched over,
watched beside
can I trust I’ll know
your body twitch, tick tick your mind,
that I’ll love you more
than a daughter, son,
than the one
I lay all those years beside,
can I trust
can I trust my back is covered
can I trust that you are wired
really wired
when I shoot you’ll spot, watch, sight,
crawl alongside
through the shit
can I trust you’ll carry it
coeur courage, encourage, courageous
trust can I trust
your ears, your eyes
can I really trust
you’re good to go,
can I trust you’re wired?
