issue 3: predatory
unicorns were known to tread delicately
dropping like the snowflakes
that fell and danced
on her porch in the winter
but they were never real
they can’t be
they were too mysterious
the little girl watched such
revelations fall beyond her
behind her and below her
and didn’t notice
that a shiny coat of white
and a horny littered with love
was approaching her
behind her back

every halloween, jimmy goes from porch to porch, begging for candy.
as adults open the door, they coo and they swoon, littering candy in his basket.
jimmy stands, grinning silently.
little did the candy-givers know
that jimmy did not want candy
jimmy wanted to be noticed for his lion costume
the voluptuous mane and the brave, perturbed chest
jimmy’s skinny little chest heaved in dismay
under his lion costume
the quran is under
by the media, by the press,
by the animal kingdom.

she circled around him,
wondering how on earth she managed to drive him away.
she could only sigh, and she pocketed his pulsating heart.
she checked. pulmonary artery. aorta. all 4 chambers.
4 chambers. number 4.
she was a hoarder, and he was bleeding heart #4.

i was 10 when i mounted the beast
kingda ka, of six flags, new jersey
as i approached the top, i could only roar
i fell, gracefully, monstrously,
and i wished i was a beast.
