lean, lithe

lean, lithe
panther body
cat at rest
ready
muscles relaxed
but prepared
for the
sudden pounce
so beautiful
in your glory
the essence of
violent death
hangs on you
but not evil
there is a rightness
in what you do
killing because you have to
not out of spite
i would love you
but it is hard
to love someone
who can kill
so easily
so innocently
