Hollow Subjects

The stray comes ’round again, looking for a meal

Always keeps its’ distance, never comes to heel

Appeal with gentle words

It doesn’t mean a thing

Desperation dictates

Hunger is king

Fear, his queen

Absolute power

Control complete

Sunken cheeks

Sharp hips

All ribs

Painful image

Edge of nothingness
