It runs and runs its legs dig into the Earth as it flees but the distance closes. Scratches appear on its back and it stops.

The fawn lays down its head amidst the clawing and

The fawn lays down its head amidst the clawing and the scratching and

The fawn lays down its head amidst the clawing and the scratching and the tearing of

The fawn lays down its head amidst the clawing and the scratching and the tearing of flesh.

It knows that it must

It knows that it must sleep.
