the beast

everything was tried

put in front of me

there but for the taking

cuteness niceties

smiles sweetness soft

arrangements made

& still I refused to buy in

I was the beast all right

made flesh if not for biting

there was something off

not quite right about the deal

& like all wild things

instinct drove me to circle

test the air

wary to take the bait

until I did against instinct

got caught in her trap

but as soon as I was free

I was gone

never to return

& somehow

I was still the beast
