“After the kill, there is the feast. / And towards the end, when the dancing subsides, / and the young have sneaked off somewhere, / the hounds drunk on the blood of the hares, / begin to talk of how soft / were their pelts, how graceful their leaps, / how lovely their scared, gentle eyes.”
Lisel Mueller, U.S. poet, Pulitzer winner
