A Hunter So Frail

(Image Source: http://lessonpix.com)


a hunter so frail
calmly licks those open wounds
under shade of stars

under shade of stars
a trap awaits for the king
hunter, now hunted

  8. Our cycle always comes full-circle. "Under shade of stars" is interesting, possibly hiding our fate.
