with no peaceful resolution in sight

by J.J. Campbell

trailer park

small white town
in ohio

a bullet goes
through a trailer

the police are

a deputy investigating
the complaint pulls out
her camera to take a
photo of a footprint

that deputy is
shot in the face

a shootout ensues
with her dead body
caught in the middle

another officer is

swat is called

hours pass with
no peaceful resolution
in sight

gunfire erupts

all caught on

suspect is dead

either by his
own hand or

no one really
cares at this

happy new year
