predation

she
grins as i unravel,
open my ribs to her
lovingly.
 
she
kisses me
as though i don't feel
her teeth.
 
i try not to grin in return.
 
she
dives.
 
into the dark pathways
i reveal to her.
takes my silks and silvers
down the tunnels
of the Tree.
 
she
makes as if she devoured
me.
 
there
at the very bottom of
her quickly-fleeing hunger,
 
i wait
with my unsated own.
lovingly.

Author's Note
there's something beautiful and intoxicating in being underestimated, in playing "prey."
it's an odd, quiet sort of power.
