Hunt by Megan Cartwright

Catch the scent, hackles rise.
Thinks I don’t see. 
Stay low. Stay secret.
Meat memory. Salivating.

Meat memory, salt-slick skin.
Snarling, froth and spittle.
I like to crunch the bones, suck the marrow.

Calcite deposits collect on canines.
Rattling breath; white pain of incisors.
Replete. Sink in sleep.
