prey

When I caught you stalking
larger prey,
you looked guilty, as though
your agile courage were a sin.
I suppose you’ll never know I
dined out on you all day
regaling an uncaring world with
your steady tread
your flinty gaze
your apparent disregard for what
you might do if you ever
actually
caught it
