make-believe

It's a snap, she knows, and every time,
her best laid traps catch mice and men.
One drawn by bait, the engineered smell of succor,
then
           snap!
                      the thin metal bar;
or enticed first by the snap!
of a thin elastic band, then reeled closer
by synthetic scents, exotic or familiar, alluring and leading
to a similar little death

and afterwards, she is never afraid
to get her hands dirty
throwing out the detritus
