Bullethole Art

A bullet hole in a shop window on the Champs-Élysées in Paris.

The translucent eye,

the dark iris

with a filigree of filaments

A black ink sketch in glass


The art piece infers

so much more


The shooter’s persona,

their intent

the emotion inherent

to this hole


The victim’s guise,

their crime,

their surprise or knowing

to the barrel’s aim


Was this bullet

a missile out of the unknown,

or a certainty in time,

if not the place?
