Tapped From Behind


I had the laddle
By my right.
My chest drummed hard, faster.
My eyes were everywhere
Like an alerted wild animal.
My left grabbed and excused the pot cover.
Inside, dead animals swam.
A gush of aroma blessed my nostrils.
Ta! Ta! Ta!
I heard 3 quick foosteps.
I turned.
Mother was by the door.
Staring, cold.

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
