honor system

if i have to die

being hunted,

being chased and cornered and cut –

i want it to be

at the behest

of an animal:

a lion, bear, wolf, shark;

by the sharp eyes and teeth

of something hungry,

something in need,

something that can’t know

greed or hate

or how to ameliorate

my pain.
