The deer looked at the hunter
Froze up like it was in headlights
The deer gave the hunter a look
A quiet stare
Image DetailThe deer sees a loud flash
In that flash
The deer sees its life
From when it was born
To its first steps
To finding fruits and berries on its own
To escaping predators
To finding new rivers of water
To mating season
To giving birth
And lastly
Its favorite tree
All within this split second
It looks at its side
See a hole
And some blood
Sharp pain at first
Then to numbness
One last stare at the hunter
It can't stop staring
