PROMPT: WILD

4

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.
