Poem – Savagery

Savagery

 

While I understand

it is a savagery

that overtime will be

abated

though not

extinguished

and that it grows from

intuition

and not

understanding

I still find it terrifyingly poignant

to watch a shrieking toddler

chase a pigeon

with such ferocious determination

 

as if

were he able

he would catch each of us

and crush us

between

those sticky

little fingers.
