When you first heard of me there would be a curious invocation,

Perhaps plucking moments and strumming memories from past observations -

A minor or major device to prevent escape and maintain operation.

But neither a liege icon, or ancient instructions sent by private post,

Has saved this harmless innocence from becoming hunter's boasts -

Jarring images of red and white is all that remains of their hope.

I think a harp seal is an endangered (or extinct... not sure which) species of seal... :(

I missed the harp, I guess...I was thinking of rural mailbox or even the devices to snag the mail off the trains...I have no idea why. Good treaser. 8)

nice teaser - very difficult, but well written :D

Very good, very thought-provoling teaser! I didn't get it though. I got the part of being a hunted animal but didn't make the connection. The tragedy of the harp seal needs to be better known. Your teaser might help. :)
