The Market in Eridu

I traveled miles to shop at the market in Eridu

In front of castle Meedes

I saw this tasty sweet meat

That walked on two feet

This is not just any kind of meat

This meat is of fine quality AAA

I take a deep sniff

sensing it's presence

It's flesh so enticing

This sweat lamb walks over to me and dare speaks

I speak with in myself

please don't come near

My blood begins to boil

The scent of flesh is heavy in my nostrills

I become hypnotically mesmerized

I lick my lips

My boiling blood shivers through my flesh

My pupils become enlarged

My finger nails grew several more inches

My hair stood wildly upon my head

What is happening to me

the moon has not risen

What is this power that has seized me

My teeth pertrude from the the sides of my lips

I slyly slip them with in my jaw

I try to compose myself in a civilized manner as we chat with each other

while hiding the madness inside

My mouth begins to water

Saliva drips from the sides of my mouth

I slyly wipe my mouth

It was like a sheep walking out in front of a wolf

      Interesting and bizarre -- in a good way. Very descriptive; I like the way you form concepts in your reader's minds.
