the prowler and the prey

some may think me

a hypochondriac.

 

no, i’ve just had visions of sickness and death

for as long as i can remember;

 

and, visions of flying and

birthing and being at home

 

in my new-found skin as a

lion, man, circus performer.

 

this is the human condition:

 

to watch for what is coming,

to be both the prowler and the prey.
