Pit

there is an insatiable pit
gnaws
clamors for more
hovers on edge of living
crater ready to open wide
into yawning emptiness
like a gruesome accident
attention cannot be turned away
head swivels
must look
irresistibly drawn to hollow trench

this dark, black hole
consumes
all in its path
anything that draws
near the edge
disappears
into inky abyss
