In My Defense

When attacked a shark will show teeth
just long enough to give any adversary
a chance to pray before he tries to flee

Some trees secrete a sweet poison,
that would be assassins must eat,
a succulent last supper. The common

bully will strike first, destroy a weak
member of the herd to announce
his superiority. In my defense

I take the tact of a moth, sit still
in a place matching my shadings
and hope, in silence, no one sees me.



A day is not done, until it's filled with words.
