there is a version

there is a version
of being cornered
that looks like letting
your hair down
it comes
with basic
squirming, a bit
of flailing, and
finally, a slow
slide into the
arctic waters –
seen it. it’s
the one where they
cut to the scene of
a lone ice floe
bobbing for balance
while the kill has
just begun
