Shock and awe

Fear bites

as they first

whisper

what you are

and you can

see it

inside the lakes

of your reflection

on the surface

of their vision

and it is a pure

fear

like noticing

a tiger

in the long grass

and neither one

moves

but years on

hearing them

tell you

all they did

was in your name

as their vision

is eclipsed

for the last

time

the new terror

makes the old

a

kitten.
