In your hollow house
these empty skins
tread fur and flat underfoot.
Half-sprung animals, who do not realise
escape attempts are futile
press closer against their transparent walls.
Ancestors with leaded eyes
watch your progress from their gilded vantage point.
You must stalk softly, quietly
cock your gun.
You only get one shot.
