Forbidden Limbs

Crocodiles used to run on land

With a loping gait, ravenous

Gazelle: graceful,

Terrible, apex lizards.

Perhaps they were too skilled,

Too terrifying for their Creator,

Too merciless for his vision.

Perhaps all terrible things

Terminate in forbidden places,

Soaked in mud,

Lurking away from

Glancing minds.
