Pounce

"At Play" - Pandacan, Manila, 12 November 2014
“At Play” – Pandacan, Manila, 12 November 2014

I am on

the prowl

ready to

pounce;

claws sharpened

upon hard

unyielding

hearts

upon cold

cruel

souls.

 

I play

with

my prey;

I act

the sweet

the innocent

the soft

the gentle.

 

But

I bare

my fangs

at the

last

second…

and the

viciousness

within

is unleashed

in spades.

 

None

survive my

wrath

save I.
