orange maw with razor teeth

already deafened
in the right side
when the screaming
began outside
sending shivers
of white noise to
scrape down my
all engulfing ache

he was four foot
nothing and around
two hundred pounds
pushing a large
neon orange colored
circular saw across
the concrete of the
cracked parking lot

the blade screeched
into the overcast morn
sending a cloud of
dusty particulates blowing
while the sound tore
through the papermache
of my ethereal being
leaving naught but pain

i stood staring out
the glass doors of my
aquarium where i tend to
hide amongst the gravel
as he jiggled behind
the roaring monster with
metal teeth chewing through
the bedrock just outside
