The Feasting Beastie

Word of the Day Challenge: CRAVE

“Louis-Simon Lempereur after Jean-Baptiste Oudry, Le loup et le chien maigre (The Wolf and the Thin Dog), published 1756, hand-colored etching,


She wanted what I had

sharp teeth, a sharper tongue

and nice hair.


I wanted what she had

a mirror that told her lies

and little car that went vroom vroom.


But I like my sharp tongue

my sharp teeth

and when I crave for the things she has


I write my stories about death and decay

and mirrors that lie and little cars with fancy names

and instead of craving for what I don’t have, I feast on what I do.
