Pit Bull

I'm going to write something that bares
its teeth and growls at the cuff
something that rips and tears
until there is nothing left but bone

legs in tatters
mouths full of blood
and yet
we are grinning
wide

And when you rip off
your clothes and howl
at pure unadorned sky -

I swear, I
will.

I like the power of the word "swear" in the last lines. The simplicity of
that text underlines the intensity of the emotion.

Thank you very much Slewjo, 'swear' is underrated.

Glad you enjoyed it.
