Cups For Each Other

by Venkat

​down frozen teeth

come foxes from your arm

eyes cloaked in red

lift the wild dust

of untamed howls

into ears,  cloaked in green

the vultures, they chuckle

sway gentle in unison

upon plains of my heart

the hyenas, they giggle

find bones in carrots

along rivers of my breath

the tigers, armed by a smile

care not for howls and foxes

from the caves of my mind

where venom is sweet

where fruits hang immortal

and beasts become friends

for the cups they filled

for each other
