Big Game









As I circle my prey
I see he's out there
circling me,
we play this game
of certainty.
I know what
he's hungry for,
he's been way down
this path before.
I'm not so sure
he would agree,
but all my life
he's followed me,
devouring
friends, lovers, too.
When done with me
he'll come for you.
Caught so many
by surprise, though
they all knew
how time flies.
I know they did not
wait for him,
though more than one
invited him in.
