Sleeping Tiger

So gracious, so civilized
Teeth grinding, lips curled
Try so hard, grin so wide
Growling under breath

Crawling close, closer
Shoulders swimming
Up and up, closer
Least expected

Even by you
Underestimated
Stripes crawling
Into palms closed

Look deeper, this time
Past yourself
Sleeping tiger
I know it’s hard
