Venom

your highly specialized teeth do
not scare me you nor your hollow
fangs the result of convergent
evolution

while not out of your
strike zone I am immune to your
envenomation cold blooded
slitherer

no prey immobilization here
just self-defense your ecosystem is
not healthy your predatory skills
lacking

your clothing scales forced to burrow
no match for a competitive carnivore
your colors bright do not fool
me
