Monster Movie

Ordinary life going on and then
buzz woof thud unseen in desert,
pantry, pond. More sinister than
mosquito biting sleeping man

is that thing now hulking about or
inhabiting flesh and will already.
See how they mow their yards
at first and kiss their kisses

while all the while that
trembling gob waits to change
lives past recognition or repair.
