We shot up the old sedan
with ammunition whose use-by date
expired at midnight.

Paul filmed it with his smart phone
hoping for a Bonny & Clyde scene,
but our bolt action rifles were too slow.

We expended the latest round
of our virile hostility
riddling that tireless car.

A ricochet off the roll bar skyrocketed
before plugging the ground
through Todd’s broad brim hat.
