he holds the rifle towards her

she holds the rifle towards her


he loves it when she hits a target

as though it’s the most excellent accident


he loves the way she wins a soft toy

under his tutelage


she resents his attentive tutelage

and fixes him in her trigger sight


he loves her aggression

thinking it’s kind of sexy


at home the winning panda

sits between them, like that
