Blowgun•————-»
Smooth and swift-
a simple weapon
used to fire tainted
darts straight into
my core.

Hunter•—————»
Momentum of
5,000 breaths-
pushing harder
so I feel the force
of iron lungs.

Blowpipe•————»
Propulsive power
with curare laced
tips- poison to
paralyze and
secure the fall.

Shooter•————-»
Capture wildlife-
a steady need to
tranquilize, stun,
and cage this
lovely beast.

Blowdart•————-»
Elusive target-
shrink and quiver
into the silent
softness of deadly
breaths.
