Unsystem the System

We don’t say we are armed when we mean
our arms. We don’t say
                          we are armed.

Though our arms are real,
             they are really arms,
                           and we could use them
to disarm ourselves now.
             We could use them
             to squeeze or hold or load
                          not a gun, not a gun,
             please not another gun.
