Slashing out

von Christa Layr

The trouble is, when you slash out
you might hit what is dear
and does not know what it’s about,
so try not to get near.

This makes a slashing out just dumb

– you don’t hit what you like –
in any case by rule of thumb:
stop short before you strike.

If you are strong and strong-willed, too,
you rein your impulse in,
thereby avoid damage to you
and others to begin.
