Vixen

I wish you could see what I do.

This photo

it’s a lie.

Sinopa doesn’t look like this,

not to me.

Underneath the lace,

the soft eyes,

there’s a vixen.

Have you watched a vixen

prowling the forest?

Sniffing out where the weak,

the vulnerable,

are hiding from her.

It’s tricky,

to avoid her senses.

She’s low to the ground,

vigilant,

voracious,

soundless,

inexorable,

patient,

relying on the atmosphere,

her ability to read each small sign.

These signs

they lead her in

for the kill.

Seeking the fragile point.

Where you’ll break easily.

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
