still life by Rick Richardson

I am not a silent poet

artifacts arranged
chronologically –

flint and wood
allied with cordage –

sharp-edged bronze and iron
– a skull with cut marks
beside a copper
-tipped alloy bullet

on the shelf between
war and peace
and anthropology –
an anthology

– details emerge
in the painting
– killing is our nature
and dying

– a still life.
