The WIld Things are hungry

I feed the paper
with words as if it is
a Wild Thing

Watching it chew the nouns
with vowels stuck in between
its sharp teeth

As I pretend
to be a wolf
by putting a piece of cloth

over my head
Not blinking once
as I stare into its yellow eyes

making me the
King of All
Wild Things.
