Praying Mantis-Hannah Wagner/ The Hero’s Inferno

Hannah Wagner

Prayer stance

I sit I wait I watch

They call me prophet, fortune teller

Eyes so wide and my third eye lets me see far beyond the sky

I hold my ground and in that moment creature and creator are but one

Night has come

I release my essence into the air

You grow, sprout wings, and make your way to me

I hear a flicker, a crush on the leaves, a pitter patter

It always ends the same

180 degrees later and I’m chomping on your inner cortex

The hunger pounds away too strong to contain

The small ones are always an easy target, the ones that love their mothers

Then there are the ones that leave too soon

I just wasn’t ready so I took a little bite to teach him a lesson
