Ted Prescott: Small Sacrifice 


 
Wish

by Christine Perrin 

There is a sculpture I have hung on my wall—
 a steel trap with two tiny bones set in its jaw, 
for which a fox or mink had to gnaw its foreleg off.

The artist, my friend, found the death instrument 
and mounted it like a wish—for the animal in the teeth 
of mercy and instinct to break free of itself.
