The pack

They sit around
the remains
from the hunter’s skill
everyone
waiting
to see who will brave
the still
body.

They
none of them
growl but
the eyes glint
at other purposes.

A young female
darts in and bites
quick but has to shake
and shake
to pull meat from the
tattered skin and bone.

A few of the onlookers yip
playfully
enjoying her difficulty
in being first
but envious all the same
as she drags a morsel away
smiling.

Two hungry heads
lunge in
and politely
tag agile turns
at the midsection.

Then the rest
dive in
but I wait
quietly
thinking what
they’ll be like
for mine
next week.
