Footsteps by Jessica Mannion

Foul beasts! Iamb scared
Spondee; sly Pyrric
doth pounce! And baleful
Bacchic bites toothsome
Dactyl, just for fun.
Amphibrach–she waits
for long, dark minutes,
‘til out pokes Trochee …
SNAP! goes head … all quiet.
Anapest stops, then stirs,
then circles, then curls.
Hearts beat. Poems asleep.
