Beware of the Dog



Beware of the Dog

I carry my heart
In a hamper;
Big as it is—
They had to pad
The insides with cotton,

I walk through woods,
As wolves cry,
Taunting my flesh
With salivating tongues—

Dark trees bow
Down to me
As yellow eyes stare
And tongues
Lick lips,

The drops
I leave behind

Like breadcrumbs
In the rain,

Pulverizing at
First glance of moisture.

  1. is it a good idea to keep your heart in a hamper? Do you take it out and use it? and nice description of dark woods

  2. Why is this person carrying their heart in a hamper and still alive? Did they get a new one? Why, as a clearly sick person, are they wandering around in wolf-infested woods with raw meat in their hands, dripping blood for the pack to follow? This cannot end well *wink*
