Poem: Thirsty

A playful poem that starts off seeming a little ominous only to learn it is about a little kitten nursing on it’s mother.  I was trying to capture a wild tiger or lion cub with all the danger it would become or think’s it is while still a kitten.

Thirsty

Birth of an everlasting hunger

early stretch before the hunt

small fangs save a mouth that can kill

his simple breakfast only inches away

crawling in spite preparing to feast

kitten begins to root for mothers milk

-poem by Justin Germino
