Sharks Teeth Poem by Leria Hawkins


Sharks Teeth
Date: February 21,2012

You gathered me in shadows
Spurned me in the light
At noon, your teeth sharpened
At dusk, you're taking sight
Caught between the crosshairs
A victim…aye, the prey
My heart, an easy target
A simple lot to slay

A meal of easy pickings
Like rabbit in a snare
Your rage is fired upon me
A shot to burn the air
A moment then it's over
Your motives met the mark
You feast upon your victory
Circling like a shark
