animals

they catch my animal scent
under overpasses
beneath bridges
i walk too seductively
my eyes catch theirs
and that’s the cue
to throw me against a wall
or down on a muddy path
they become the predator
and me their prey
my other self watches
remembering the others
while trying to erase this one
but a hot shower, a cold beer,
and a clean shirt and
i will be exactly how
i was before
