An Inland Taipan

My heart’s floundering

I feel it recoil
An inland taipan
Can be forgiven
Could I forgive you?
Something in me moans
Bleeding something folds
So it must be fed
The stone-eyed in you
Slithering empty
In heart dry of red
Now a frozen fort
You take extra care
Ones like mine are weak

You never mean harm
As there is no you
But empty craving
To bite the living
Life that flattened you
So now from down there
We are all just boots
Might step on you thus
You must be lethal
If you want to live
So I tell my heart
Its petals folded
Tale of the taipan
That ate a woman….
