an automaton put back together wrong

there is a wild
wolf that lives somewhere in the forest
and eats little pigs all in threes.
it could rip out your throat
in a second
and its howl could cut out your knees.
it's angry and lonely and
knows only the kill
and its footsteps are painted with blood.
it's a storybook wolf,
a monster of myth,
and it will drag you into the mud.
that's the whisper they tell
to their children,
those wolves who live in the woods,
to warn them about
the tall hairless beasts
that kill all their red riding hoods.
