shadow puppets

i am wild and dark and dangerous
i am a big strong thing
i make shadow puppets on the wall
to scare you away from me

i make a shark, circling
i make a wolf, howling
i tell you please,
don’t come near me-
please, please, please.

then i am a small thing again,
begging pathetically
because i can suffer from it
and i suffer badly
