Life, blood

 

full, rich, and red
remember the beating
the pulsating
throughout a body armed with teeth and an appetite for meat?
a selfish mouth closes around this moment
canines so white and unnatural
gleaming, dangerous swords of bone
puncture reality; colorful, wet, and thick
the paint, so plentiful, oozes past a greedy tongue
a crime has been committed for the hunger
there is violence
there is unrest
there is life and there is blood
