Light doesn't imprison, and yet
That moment
When the animal freezes, it believes itself
By the photons, the waves, the rays
As surely as if it were

And so
It cannot flee
Its impending

But the light does not bind;
It frees - 
It illuminates the danger, which, 
Were the light not present,
Would strike unannounced,
Destroying without warning.

The light calls.
The light declares the danger, clarions the calamity.

It is up to the animal
To decide what to do:
Will it freeze, unbelieving
That such catastrophe
Should befall it?

Or will it heed the clarion call
And flee
The coming darkness?
