Impecunity

My heart’s velociraptor
is vicious when provoked
beyond its elastic limit

Proportional to threat
especially in protection
of its nested Young

Rage of hearts resorting
to scavenging behavior
wound-licks beg deference

Let me predate in peace
relish my relative poverty
& leave my Babies alone
