“Skull Fragments #7 & #8”

VII. I Used To Be

I used to be

A coyote;

Mischievous, and

Cunning.

But, now

I am a deer;

Cautious, and

Aware of my

Surroundings.

VIII. Sudden Inspiration

Instantly,

There was a click! and

Flash! from the camera.

The bulb in my

Head burned out

To a crackling dimmer.
