Animals Hunting

August 18, 2017


In the supermarket animals are hunting
for eggs.
They are digging out potatoes
and fondling ripe melons.
Young pairs graze together down aisles.
An old female is poking the buns
while young hunters bring in peaches
and pile them in bins.
Animals carry food to the counter.
After sniffing and other rituals they pass
and hurry to dens with broccoli and
beef hearts.
