Girls with Guns

by KJ Halliday

“And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son. Zechariah 12:10


With a strange tongue

She licks away

The sugar coated soul

Mysterious madam

Wondering what awaits

Beyond the coloured curtain

Of fates twisted and uncertain

A lace and leather burden
