A still-free man

There are spaces within which

criminals know they’ve

done it, but

no one else does

yet:

the space between the

trigger-pull and

hammer-strike;

the space through which

the bullet flies;

the space between the

impact

and its registering in the brain.

Such spaces expand

to mingle with the air.

You may have

passed through one

on your way here.
