Torpedo the Soul



Lock on,

ready, aim, fire!

Sonar cries ping, ping, ping.

The anomaly is not a liar.


There’s one-way to defeat.

Destroy each other’s fleet.

Go ahead and guess my number—you think won the goal,

that’s when a torpedo explodes your soul.


Think again. No more chances.

This ain’t no cheap board game. No plastic parts. No rules.

Salty tears drip, drip, drip.

“Ha, you miss!”

My turn to sink your only battleship.

  5. I’ve had a torpedo detonated straight into my soul.
    Guts don’t explode all over the place, but the blast is excruciating anyway.
    Isn’t that what people do to each other —
    Lock onto the coordinates, squeeze the trigger, and fire away?

    Superb poem! It triggered memories…
