The silent unfriendly moon

clothed in deadly nightshade

a cornhusk for its sex

whispered to the sleeping child

awake my dear, here waits my breast

a rabbit waits in its burrow

twitching to come out and feed

greets beady-eyed death on its doorstep

an underground snugbox is free

the leaves on the tree

struggle to breath

a shadow dies as someone retires to bed

similar yet different a wolf like dog raises his leg and claims the pet shop

his own
