The Flying Otter Hunts

by Mary E. Lowd

Fish flies one way
The otter flies another
Searching, searching
Following the cries of a hungry belly

The fish follows the call
Of silence
Quiet corners
Of the cosmos
Wherein to hide

But the otter is coming
Following, following
Filled with hunger
Which only the fish
Can subside
