Deer in the Night
Victoria Krylova

Murmuring footsteps
Unseen in the guise of the night
Light prancing of swift feet
In the gory aurora of the moon
Running against a flash of lightning:
Blood-soaked crack in the sky
A hyena howls

Precision and grace;
Nimble like leopards
Shining white figures fiddling dancers
Painted with strokes of strength

Steadfast lingering, awaiting,
The shrill stillness of silences screech
Across the hour of gloom-
Beholding someone’s nightmare
In the frightened pierce of a dream
September 2016
the new
Happeningnow everywhere.
