Prey

A lioness

in tall grass

Slowly stalking

Quiet

Moving

with the wind

Swaying

with each step

Shoulders

in time

Seed heads

Her mane

Tail low

Twitch

Head low

To the ground

Eyes unblinking

Focused

A kind and gentle stranger

Patient

Soft

Like sleep

Waiting

A long, slow fuse

3–2–1

Ignition
