Bitch. Abortionist. Eater of succulent foods.
Succubus, seducer of men, mouth wide open
in orgiastic shrieks, consuming children, men,
teeth razors nipping testes. Moon eclipsing
sun. Scarlet and purple silk flutter about you,
wanton as wicked wind, your snarls unbound,
your armpits tangled owl nests. You best
sorcerers’ spells, you beast, you beauty, you wreck.
In truth, you weep! You are done, and you weep,
huddle in your hovel, alone with the pigs, and weep!

Dr. Anna Cates teaches college and graduate level writing, literature, and education online. She has published a variety of books (poetry, fiction, and drama) through, and She resides in Wilmington, Ohio with her two beautiful kitties.
