E.E. Cummings at Jurassic World

She being brand New
and consequently hungry for meat,
hid amongst the leaves
with Her tree frog lineage,

(having deceitfully marked the
wall to lead Her food inside,
to make sure it was nice
and fresh)

they pulled the lever and entered the door
as She stood watching,
waiting,
ever
so slowly,
as she moved
up
be-
hind
them.

they moved
in sep-
a-
rate
di-
rec-
tions
as She edged
closer,
closer,
until She
could smell the mar-
row in the bones,
Her heart beating faster
as she came upon the first
of Her feast
and its heart
beat
quickened
at the sensation
of Her teeth
as they clamped
down,

snapping into its tiny body,
warm liquid gushing,
meat stuck between Her teeth
and with two bites
and a quick swallow
She finished the first
and moved on to
the second;
the first, just a snack
to wet Her insatiable
appetite,
and
ever
burgeoning
&
excogitating
desires,
laid out
across the
land
in front
of-
Her.
