Red’s got a secret

Lauren Myers

 

Red’s got a secret

 

the little red hood

conceals

little red marks

of little sharp paws

between

little white thighs

 

and that big,

bad,

wolf, baby

just what a little girl needs

and little

Red

riding hood,

knows that grandma can’t see

 

and that simple, satin hood,

our scarlet

bed

in the woods

for me,

 

and my big,

bad,

Wolf.
