the beast smiles

the beast smiles
.
the kitten is eaten
by its mother
as the snake uncoils
in her womb
.
what is
is devoured
what is to be
lie trapped inside
.
dropped at death
yet not claimed by birth
time clings for life
on the smile
.
the beast obliges
the beast smiles
.
the world shudders
.

what propelled u to write this...so much of uncertainty.
but the swallowing bit has a dark, swooshing ability to humour that can't be digested...
shoon....i love your madness. it has a hunger, atypical of a dog, akin to spider crawling mindlessly.
trials and trials...
