Hunger Drives Anybody To Limits - Poem by Manonton Dalan

stand-off by two desert hunters
where rock as small as quarters
quick stab of scorpion in head
stun its adversary; battle over
toxin spreading quick; heartbeat
pieces of flesh torn from limbs

night would be long consuming
delicacy of a winning trophy
tomorrow would be another hunt
scent guided nose tipping stones
looking for victorious yesterday
undeterred by heat persistent
