The untamed creature
crimson tongue and rowdy tail
his teeth my time bomb
like a readied shotgun
we should have been afraid
but we’ve lived through the callous days
so here we are
face to face
his eyes are soft
the paint a masquerade
to protect his heart from anymore pain
I climb inside
his bone clenched jaw
unlock, with softest paws
the bunny inside the mouth of a fox
gently down inside his home
beyond the armor
we are alone
an unlikely pair
the irony of love
