fodder for sniper

It started off looking at ducks on a pond
the sun somewhere
vertical standing here amongst heat and listen to the grass grow sweat on top lip, taste of salt like swimming sea
– as in sand
between toes
in sandwiches

praying for a breeze but not coming exposed in the open like
fodder for the snipers
