Night mode –
do my wings terrify?
Does the beat of these bones and membranes
send terror, shivers down your spine?
I am ready for the evening,
suit of armour here for protection,
although I won’t need it,
it’s only a matter of deflection.
I shall reign triumph and terror
where I see fit,
your lashing anger and fury show no signs of abating,
how dare you,
with tempestuous words direct hit upon hit?
I am ready for you,
and those of your kind,
with their enormous span –
do they terrify?
