charmed

crossing the clearing
rocky widest riverbed
mullein, blue chicory
dragonfly anne's lace
tread on loose gravel
and reach the summit.

there he was

sunning
basking
waiting
preying

surprised, i jumped.

then held back
licked my lips
waited for him
to notice mine

watching
quivering
preening
preparing

as i approached
he twitched just
slightly, feeling
the ground vibrate
forked tongue out &
in out & in flickered
sensing my approach as
i crept slowly sloowwly
curious wanton desiringly

without fear

and
then
snap!

his eyes on mine

fast
faster
waves on
undulating
lateral waves

face to face
close to close

too close

as i melted
in his eyes
his strikes
left me raw
limp undone

prostrate
procumbent
and ready.

methodically precise
his devouring began
with my baby toes
tongue tickling
up my calves
pausing
for
a nibble
of my thighs
taking his time
with all of me til
he was inside me and
i inside of him fully

devoured
digested

eaten alive.
My Indie Ink writing challenge this week came from Barb Black of Black Ink Pad, who challenged me to compare a loved one to an animal. Of course my old man is a fox, but this was more fun to write.
