Myth of the Mantis

Praying mantis smiles at me 
when she crushes open 
Wings of time, and neon rainbows 
open skies, it is for Life, She cries 

Murmering "murder" singing dark 
mantras of Love , woven around 
Her deep undying heart 

Luscious tones awaken 
Her serpentine tongue slithering 
From bone, to bone, sliding 
across  the spinal chord 

I am Her prey
