The Hunter Returns.

bounds into the house
proud and triumphant
with a rat in his mouth

it's dead as a doornail
but puss doesn't know
that it's game over...

one paw lifts and tosses
ratty up over his shoulder,
swipes it over the floor

the chase continues
play is a one-sided game
until puss is exhausted

his languorous pose
dead beat, like the rat
in deaths final repose.
