carbide

a blur of teeth and gullet
carves the fissure
taste of tissue, skin  
and blood  
  
yet it does not hate  
doesn't hunger  
   
and thick droplets  
speckling a thin wake of pollock    
trailing from the beast  
   
though it does not thirst  
no rancor  
   
it was the scream of conifer  
my poor judgement    
and a lack of the proper tool
