Easy Kills
by R. D. Ashby
Bookmark and Share
  It is the mark of every living thing
that it pass by unheeded,
once it's noticed:
or it is marked for death.
The casual glance
that moves from you
is one designed to fix and kill,
snow leopard to its mountain goat,
or eagle its exception
in the flock; a wolf pack's
long acquaintance with its prey
marks one to lead
on its acquired luck.

In passing someone
on the street, somehow
a glance avails the most,
then shifts not locks,
and if it does, some prey
is designated. Someone you know,
an out of place distinction,
a pretty child, a winsome dog,
or squirrel, make easy kills
that we are nourished by.
