I VENT MY WRATH ON ANIMALS

I came alive
When things went
Crazy.
I pulled the plug on
The reports of
Sturm & drang
When someone
Signaled I
Left open
What I
Could not close.
I broke a
Covenant that
Was more fierce
Than murder.
I vent my wrath
On animals
Pretending they will turn
Divine.
I open up
Rare certainties
That test free will.
I take from animals
A place in which
The taste of death
Pours from their mouths
& drowns them.
I support a
Lesser surface.
I draw comfort from
The knowledge
Of their
Being.
