She moves methodically and swiftly,
Stalking her prey.
He moves frantically and clumsy,
Trying to get away.
Shadow to shadow, she maneuvers invisibly,
Her sight unseen.
Alley to alley, he escapes … briefly,
His capture foreseen.
Footfalls like wind, silent as can be,
She begins her stealthy attack…

She bites. He kneels.
She lives. He dies.
She gives. He…
They move methodically and swiftly,
Stalking their prey.
