rocks turn to dust, seeds are barren,

a tail of greed wags the dog

(the one who kills

the goose with the golden eggs)


half beasts slouch

toward succor and safety,

fall into fires

with withering angels


never say die

whose path is holy




not wanting to end up on his horns

she refused his friendship

and ended on a sword


some approach suing for redress

and soon find weakness

with their arrows


in a world ruled by struggle

there are choosers and the chosen,

each depending on the other




young girls, coatless in winter,

pull in eyes;

the big fish don't always

catch the little


wolves dine on fresh lambs

until the lambs turn into tigers

(the tigers into saviours)


one with great love and knowledge

walked on water

beckoning others to follow

and they still believed in death
