Originally published in Assisi
The tiger in the Asian wood
gives no thought to "did" or "should,"
but, ever tense and present, will
plunge forward to her future kill.

We humans run a different race,
and won't let go of our past case;
never far from who we'd been,
like snakes still trapped in prior skin.
