Today I am hungry

April 5, 2012

I am nature red in tooth and maw.
My claws are sharp too, also my
curiosity.
I want every bit of it,
each plump morsel: the juicy gossip,
the heartbreaking tale, the secret
softly whispered.
I want the blossom, the red camellia,
the nectar,
the fury that gets things done.
I want to ream the heart of poetry
and expose it as a sham, and I want
to fall into its petals, its blossomy jaw,
and be swallowed,
whole,
and always
amazed.
