THE RABID DOG HAD HER WRIST IN ITS MOUTH

The rapid dog had her wrist in its mouth,

and was digging its teeth deeper in.

With her other hand,

she grabbed

the muscular

scruff of its neck,

but couldn’t hold on.

With an emotion beyond

hate, she seized it

underneath

by

the

throat

and squeezed

and wrung and ripped,

until her life

was

safe.
