Gorilla

( image from rockdraw.com )

You were raging, splattering, raving and rattling the cage

I was standing and watching you in amazement

I was made to have keen observant eyes to spot you

You gravitated me to glue to your contorting face even in the most gruesome illustration

You could bring on the devil’s horns
I felt at ease and knew
I would tame that to peace

You were raging, splattering, raving and rattling the cage

I was standing and watching you in amazement

I stepped agilely forward to unlatch the gate
You leaped out and landed all over me
four eyes met
your flames mellowed into
my whirlpool of affection
