Mountain Beast – Random Twitter Poem for July 27th

Today’s poem is about a creature that in mountains and feeds from the beasts of the land, it is inspired by an astounding 20 random words (in blue) provided by the following twitter followers:

@tekchic (monkey), @filigreegirl (breloque), @howelegant (everlasting), @shemah (auspicious), @Zorlone (landslide), @Oneunder2001 (sharp), @denthewise (autobiography), @evliving (autopsy), @RobinJP (stairway), @katheesue (advocate), @ashchuan (thunderstorm), @JessicaSieghart (pretzel), @Aluwir (sasquatch), @RemBeatZ (dijonnaise), @santasdevil (restraining), @neobluepanther (rank), @slightlysick (niggardly), @PowerJourneys (ruminating), @franscud (superfluous), @dreamon51 (fellwalking)

For those who don’t know what a “fellwalker” is, I had to look at the wiki here myself – FellWalking

Mountain Beast

Sasquatch fellwalker sitting on a cave stairway
chasing a monkey through a thunderstorm
superfluous breloque chain hanging
like an advocate of death from your side

Rank beast with sharp eyes
and even sharper claws and teeth
ruminating over the hunt about to begin
everlasting rain running down your fur

Auspicious luck as prey darts too close
you pile down on the deer like a landslide
restraining kicking legs and bleating mouth
twisting your prey like a grisly pretzel

Not needing any dijonnaise to savor your kill
you consume flesh, organs and bone niggardly
killing and consuming; your life’s autobiography
when you are finished, nothing to autopsy remains

    That’s a lot of words and as usually well put together, hmmmm, may have to use your talents for a Remergence track one day ;)

    Yay! I’m feeling kinda primal now… think I have a T-bone in the freezer. Gonna slap it on the hot pavement then chew mercilessly at the bloody feast!

      I actually had a grilled NY Strip for dinner last night, so it fit well.

    This is one hungry beast! I wonder if there’s room for desert? hehehe.

    Cool poem Justin!

    I just had breakfast, good thing the stomach of a doctor in me didn’t gross me out.

      Thanks, I really enjoyed writing this one, the grim and macabre feel of the poem fit the mood well after watching the movie Coraline last night.
