In The Shadow Of The Mountain

I looked towards the dusk
As my eyes were seared by the billowing flames
At our camp
In the shadow of the mountain
Then I morphed into a bear
Before being swallowed deep
Into the belly of the mountain

I could hear the echo of the victims screaming
As they were devoured by the mountain
My paws were moist
From the ice-cold water
I caught a salmon in my mouth
As it leapt
From the river

I could see his fangs
So I bared my fangs
I prowled around the perimeter
He let out a mighty roar
I gave him back a thundering roar

I have returned to my human shape
My face is apparent in the reflection of the water
I rest easy now
No longer threatened

I have tired of the city
I lay on my back in the Atlantic
Watching the bats
Straddle the oncoming night
