It Devours!

“Don’t be afraid,”
say the dead-eyed tv anchors.
“There’s nothing you can do.”
Some desks are already
empty
bloodied
silent
devoured.
People are barricaded
inside homes, churches.
They are not safe.
No one is ever safe.
eaten
danger
screaming
devoured.
It just feels so empty,
so hungry.
Maybe one more soul
will fill the aching void.
tired
hungry
manic
devours.

It’s

just

still

so

HUNGRY
