Camouflaged in absence of light
It prowls her prey in circumferences.
The prey frenziedly scurries to a corner.
It gives up its partner in order for survival,
As it desperately escapes shamefully to safety.

Again, the same prey, cornered
By a different creature, similar fabrication.
Only wants its thorns removed from its hide.
But the prey, content in determination, blinded by practice
Barely budges, using twigs as chopsticks
Removing a single spine on its behind.
