Where are your war and roses?
Are you a neo Moses?
Don't give me Pope’s excuses.
Just shut up and feel
My scowling blue steel.

I rule in glassy silence
Until you wake my brimstone.
“Hit this now,” you’ll beg me.
With Clint Eastwood grin
I rub out their sin.

Ballistics for Windchime
The ultimate romantic you are, Windchime! A silencer! Why didn’t I think of that?
Nice touch. But this rational thinking was silencing the creativity: silencers hush weak ammunition, like .22 LR, 22 Win Mag, .32, .38, 9mm and subsonic versions thereof. I venture to guess that the powder load usually loaded for a bullet weighing in at 180 to 240 grains would destroy the silencer. See how engineering kills the romance? Back to the Imagotherapy Clinic (haven't visited in a long time)!

Happy New Year!

missile feelings for DrSoos
Of course! Imagine yourself as the 240-grainsoft-point copper-jacketed bullet. The specially poured hot load powder, loaded on a RCBS press in the basement of a meticulous aeronautical engineer, ignites, forcing your ogive to obturate the gently spiralling mirror-smooth lands of the gun barrel, to speed on your way to the water-filled milk jug, to burst the jug and fly off unimpeded by a backstop, until you run out of the momentum and land in a farmer's zucchini patch, occasionally visited by his daughter the milkmaid discovering miniskirts and microbikinis. Not only firearms - bullets have emotions too!

Happy drinking,

The Wages of
A clever poem, Teflon. Got me chuckling. Reminds me of Samuel L. Jackson's character in Pulp Fiction.

What?! Me drinking?!

I wanna be the gun!

I feel a haiku (or something like one) or two coming on...

on Pulp, Haiku and Exposed
Yes, Hazelfaern, I think he quoted Ezekiel a lot. What a paradox.

I think guns and their abruptness are excellent subjects for haiku. I am not in the gun haiku frame of mind now, but by all means, go ahead!

Peter, me - exposed? When did that happened? Maybe there is another Teflon walking around? Where is he?

44 thanks
thank you for reading. I could never figure out the Gina thing, who she is in real life and here.

( Posted by: Teflon [Member] On: June 14, 2011 )

of virtual realities
Gina @ G's? Gina is a virtual bartender in a virtual libational establishment. Did I base her partly on an actual girl who once worked for me in an actual bar? That's a good question.
