Napoem5 – Praying Mantis to Her Mate

The Praying Mantis to Her Mate

I won’t fold
my hands for your soul
or grace, won’t
debate primacy
of the gene
versus a power higher
than that sparrow
hawk eying us.
Focus on pumping
faster, neither my eggs
nor that hawk will wait.
Sorry. Didn’t mean
to bite off your head.
