- What Matters
I am the wild.
I am the obedient child of the Moon.
No creature can withstand my attack;
Try to avoid my powerful legs, the violent snapping of my jaws,
Or my clairvoyant, hypnotic eyes.
‘Fear me!’ I utter with the sheer power of my body.
Other scoundrels like me, heed my warning!
When I growl, know that I have already won.
My hair bristles in excitement as I accept
Lunge for me and I will destroy you.
You bear your teeth and I will bear mine back.
The warmth of your breath close to my face
Our bodies collide, but I push you back,
And my teeth snap across your spine.
I hear you utter a whine and
I tighten my hold on you as I would with a piece of meat.
I can taste the saltiness of triumph as it floods my mouth
And run down the sides.
As I release defeat,
I relish in watching it limp away.
I show my triumph to all the others around,
Daring them with my intense look to
The others back off and then go on their way.
I sit back on my haunches and howl.
