Blinded by the Setting Sun


Between trees

beyond tall grass
up above, on a hill –
silent and waiting,
he stalks.

At dusk she climbs
to reach the hilltop;
eyes of a stranger
greet her, he smiles –
no one heard her
screams, as he
savagely, grisly beat her –
raped her –

blinded by the sunlight,
between trees –
she – can’t recall his

Resting on a maple leaf
a robin sings –

as a robin’s wings
beats its’ breast.
