My soft, glows to darkness,
Silver by moonlight.
In my woods, deep with scent.
Miles of living movement.
I pant a night humid,
keeping my back slick.
Paws ready for earth.
Waiting for her.

My mate,
pitch, and unseen.
Ebony teeth, ink her hide.
Sultry with her shadows.
Eyes there, only by reflecting stars.

She puts me in heat,
for salty red, tender.
Keeping me snarling.
Nipping at mutts, and scavengers.
Running for quick kills,
the prey deserves death.
Our prowl justified, we beasts.

Then she nudges me alive.
Her head low, bare teeth.
Tail between her breasts,
snapping me with speech.

"Run with me."
"We kill hunters, the fake meek."
"Were fast, past traps and shot."
"We run now"
"Cry to a moon with no mercy?"
"Howl loneliness latter."
"We have teeth to use."
"Lets run red-eyed, till death."

(For Matt Caliri contest)

    great write raw with intent only 1 question "a preys deserved death." most of the verse is in present tense as if it's happening right now..immediate! "deserve" without the "d" will keep it NOW..present! Light & Love & thanks for the soup mail

    Wow, Johnathon! I think we have a winner here. I had to go back and read about the criteria for Matt's contest. In this I see male and female werewolves on the prowl! Scary and very rich in suspense and mystery. Awesome work! Love, Carolyn
