Too drunk to drown us

Angry as a tasered tiger
setting fires with staggered steps,
the thunder of each stampede
sends the birds out from the trees .
 
Flames hang like sharp teeth
weals redden in the heat,
belt buckled and melted
we age before his drunken sleep.
 
At last the sun rises tangerine,
rapids reach the rivers bend.
As light returns across the leaves
we slip like otters into streams.
