Day 20: SoftMature

Prompt: SOFT

Result: Rhyme.

Sangria

Soft the tread of predator’s feet

Soft the rising pulse, the failing heartbeat

Soft the flesh the teeth do tear

Soft the belly, soft the hair

Soft the dark red pattering sound

Soft the slump onto the ground

Soft the breath – the very last

Soft the lips it brushes past

 

The End
