graceful prey;

fire of the eyes,

inferno of dark forest

shooting high

the snake of paradise. 

you take me

these sweaty steps

of an exhilarating hunt

for your beautiful soul

and delicious firm hole. 

what ecstatic animal

plays a game of guts

with a stubborn will

as a maze of find

for the hunter's skill? 

yet and yes, you dare

a silent sturdy gun

stalking the intestines 

of a city; you turn

a heart to and fro

for a kill more than gold. 

now the rough field

lay a laughing sky

as the bliss graveyard

soul, hole happily died

of the cloud of eros,

waters of heavenly height. 

the rough soft field

is my hunter's bright pride

where the rock of a prey

flowed the butter of a catch,

sweet and creamy of a taste

as a worthy conquered wife.
