Friday Night friday night the bullet ripped through torso crack bone entered lung blood spurts from lips his teeth colored he gurgles he chokes on 43rd he is seventeen just turned he just learned his length he holds him his manhood the blood seeps he coughs he wants to spit the bullet up he hears circle envy leaves first then pride the sky gets small one flash light beam then dark
