Upon the bank of a trail coils she

In the rising light gleaming bronze and white.

She betrays no warning; A compass her,

Attuned to knowings pulling point to pole.

All aligned into astrolabe angles,

Her tongue tastes what the scrub whispers hotly,

And her head turns east; approaching are

footsteps.
