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 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...
