  1. Have you ever seen the film ‘Deerhunter’ – a brilliant film. Robert DeNiro’s character has one rule when his buddies go on their hunting weekends: USE ONE BULLET FOR ONE SHOT. He feels if you can’t be sure to take the deer down with one shot then you don’t take it. The deer gets a pass. Your poem makes me think of this when you write ‘Reach for gun again.’ I found it an amusing line and ‘Deerhunter’ popped into my mind. A curious poem. Were you writing the last line to hope for a successful conclusion or just out of frustration? – jk

    I get a feel of the shots from the poem and your title sums it up 🙂
