#32 Sugar-Shined Valkyrie

Congruity of tactics and of form
Slim and lithe and mischievous of eye
Her stealthy humour sparkles in the storm
And from that gleam another barb takes flight

A twist — a dart — she spins and twists aside
And failure leaves her volley unreturned
She strikes again — disrupts her victim’s stride
And with a laugh, rejects before she’s spurned

A candy-coated malice smooths her way
Crumbling swift beneath a heavy pace
And all pursuers find to their dismay
She’s vanished, yet again, without a trace

And when tomorrow births another game
With swiftest steps she plays it just the same
