MANEATER: A Metallic Matte Poem

she feels the ruby red flush across her lips

for in these moments her quest remains motionless

she has conquered all

for the heat of the poison demands her attention

she puckers

for the sun has finally broken the facade

she is no longer alone 

for a new day has come
