The Hunt

a poem by Karthik Sankar

With prying eyes and insatiate desire
Watches he waiting on his prey
Blissful and eloquent
Unaware of the danger glides she.
The beast pounces on her
Tearing at her flesh, he skins her.
A final thrust and she
Seeks emancipation in death.
But he lets her live
To die a thousand death
Between legs of beasts of men.
