Prowl 2
Prowl 2



I prowl, hungry
nose inches from the thing
sniff like an animal of prey
search for morsels of sustenance
or gems
to add to my own string of pearls.

Never mind what they say
it’s the doing
I’m all paint now, chalk, paper
How they do it, that’s the thing –
It’s merely inside out for me
I hunt it down
borrow and steal
using booty like a changeling.


– Vermont, (2.7.18)
