Sharpened Tooth! Fang & Claw!

Sharpened tooth. Fang & claw. The knife is close. A friendly hand. Kith & Kin. There is a smile. Intimate confidence. The cut is unexpected. Unbidden. The plunge is sure, deep. A casual destruction. A perfect betrayal. Those closest to us, those who have known us the longest, find themselves in a privileged position. There is no greater wound. No deeper slash. An Existential dread. A small, certain death. Brings you up short. You catch your breath; blood rises, and falls. A blood-letting. A blood curse. Blood sport. Another cut, another scar. Another day. Another step. Life.
