Being Gollum...


Masked by latex,

Loose on face, eye-holes awry,

Restricting sight;


Clothed in habit,

Hung on body, waist roped,

Knotting tight;


Armed with fish,

Crafted from rubber, randomly wafting,

Simulating fight...


Crouched, dithering,

Speech withering

To gravelly whispers

Of threat;

Slouched, mumbling,

Curses grumbling

To incoherent whispers

Of regret...
