The pack

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

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
enjoying her difficulty
in being first
but envious all the same
as she drags a morsel away

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

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