Instinctual Behavior

You are a lion, they say.
A predator, shaped for fighting
a wolf gone rogue
howling naked before the rising moon
waxing and waning eloquent
about your own beauty.
You are a hunter, they say.
a falcon, a spirit of the trees
eyes closed, heart wide
waiting for the fight
preying on those who think
they are stronger.
You are a dangerous thing, they say.
They’re right.
