Red

You were always told to beware the wolf,

They feared his effect on your fragile frame.

You were not cautious that day

Cloud overhead you walked,

No fear

Dappled as a leaf.

Who could have known

That you were hiding sharper teeth?

And when you met him

You met with only red in your eyes –

No fear.

You were always told to beware the wolf

Until they met the wolf in you.
