Monster

MONSTER
crossing shadows, residing in the merging triangles
always under the others, motley of appendages
scales in radial whorls, watching,
panting, scratching, waiting
for brush of sheet against floor,
harbinger of a barefoot step from the world above
organs palpitating, tongue salivating
ivory claws trembling in incessant anticipation
hairs alert, eyes bulging
with unuttered fear of being left unfulfilled
shouldn’t be here, in this safe place
shouldn’t want to need what it must feed
go back where you came from!
insatiable monster
