Lesley Cox

My writer’s block monster

Slime dripping from jagged teeth
staring eyes glow red, watchful

Skeletal jaws jut from bony cranium
working in a slow, snapping motion

Scrawny neck stretches out of bony body
skinny, emaciated, with pot round belly

From hunched back sprout leathery bat wings
thinly covered by grey, taut skin

Knobbled joints and big webbed feet,
toes spiked with lethal talons

Dangerous in flight,
this creature is revolting.
