They'll Eat You

a ring of salt will not protect you
from the poison in your cup
or the shadow man at your door

there is no alternate ending
you're just falling down the spiral
staircase in her eyes
that leads to an abyss

it's a fairytale gone wrong
where the wolves weep
when the sheep in their mouths
say mean things

the only thing you can do
is run
and hide
