Prey


I’m a wounded wild animal
Let me skulk silently
In search of shelter
Head down but wary
I need a cave
Or rock or bush
Somewhere to hide
To rest & wait
To heal or not
I just need time
Somewhere safe
To be alone
Deliver me from them
Not for my skin
But for theirs
Those hunters & gatherers
With minds like biting traps
I’m weak & damaged
But my fangs remain sharp
My claws may be filed
But they can still slice
Rain down on me
Wash away my pain
Give me sleep
Fight my fever
Help me wake
And believe her

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
