An October Fable...

      His eyes salivated
        For the taste of
Red wine blossoming
              From her

         His hooks were
      Driven by a circle
         Of red commitment
             To another

      Sharp talons rend
          The first layer of
             Skin to expose
                  Her red

       The monkey wrench
          Howls his defiance at
             Victor and victim
