The Selfie

by Mike Acker

Holding it right is half the challenge.
The other is not to shake before the click.

They say that the aim will change due to pressure
applied by the trigger finger.

To think that in the old days they had to
handle gunpowder directly to produce

the explosion, which, of course, also
gave the light. The modern version is so

much easier to use: aim and shoot.
The mess is now in the aftermath.

The only question left is where it should
point: at the temple or through the mouth?
