Animal Rights Poetry and Prose By Heidi Coon

Poems of compassion dedicated to the non-human animals who share this planet with us and the people who fight for them.

By Heidi Coon

I shine in the beginning
I知 an instrument composed for cutting
Killing device
I leave a nice
I am always ready
Cold, sharp, & steady
See your reflection in me
I mirror light, shiny
Gloved fingertips dance over me
Selecting me
Fist closing around me
Cold eyes inspecting me
Together, we池e steely
I wait patiently
Till I am unsheathed to do their bidding
The hell bringing
The blood spilling
The killing
I am always willing
See them huddled, so afraid
Trembling before my sharp blade
Behold! Meat making slaughter trade!
I値l stab holes in all of them
One by terrified one, I値l cut them open
I値l puncture their bodies and drain them
Blood flowing
Until I知 left red & bloody
My blade no longer glistening
I am always ready
I shine in the beginning
