7am is the Monday of the day, when you grimace and stare the wild Beast of the week in the eye, wondering if it will leap aclaw and maul, or soften at your anxious command.

10am is the Tuesday of the week. The Beast, if not tamed, controlled.

Noon. The Wednesday. Beware over confidence! The Beast may yet slash flesh from unguarded soul.

3pm is Thursday. A shackled beast, muzzled.

5pm is the Friday. The beast sprawls, its eyes no longer follow you.

8pm. Saturday Your freedom blinds The Beast to you.

Midnight. Sunday and you, The Beast, sleep caged.

    I really like how the final line turns the entire drabble upside-down making the entire drabble a true internal conflict. Nice job!
