Therapists Refuse To Make House Calls

My bedroom window
was so traumatized
by the gunfight
that took place
in plain view
that it holds
those two cowpokes’
six-shooters blazing
within its double panes
and does not allow
any other image
to shine through.

The muzzle flashes
kept me awake—
so much like lightning
you can feel the thunder
rattling the frame
all night long.
