Feline Foe

Feline Foe

Tiger’s ears are
cannons after firing,
jolting upwards towards
the unwary kill.

Its eyes are car engine
warning lights,
flickering on and off, glowing amber.

Its whiskers are wiry needles
curved and uneven, sensing
fear, touch and its prey.

Its teeth are yellowed, ceramic,
whetted knives, cage bars
grasping its prey with a life-
stealing grip.

Its growl is deep, fear-striking,
low and feral, making its prey
know how desperately hungry
it is.

Its movements are unsurpassed,
slinky, large muscular thighs,
********** towards its meal,
pulsing in sync with its heart,
rapidly beating, pumping adrenaline.
