Clawless

like bottled lightening
fire within her

flash burns from past
lighting inner eyes

masked like a raccoon
her smile hides cracked lips

corners of her mouth
torn; difficult birth

painful reminders
of fury’s silence

she can not hide from
herself; bury hot fury

afraid her inner
jaguar’s precise claw

to jugular kills prey
spew molten blood;

an elective mute
holding onto floss

praying inner-deer
arrives, rage at bay

until one clean swipe
frees pent up wild roars
