"the tigers have found me...and I do not care."

Zoom

"225 days under grass
and you know more than I.
they have long taken your blood,
you are a dry stick in a basket.
is this how it works?
in this room
the hours of love
still make shadows.

when you left
you took almost
everything.
I kneel in the nights
before tigers
that will not let me be.

what you were
will not happen again.
the tigers have found me
and I do not care."

"For Jane"- by Charles Bukowski.

* It's both an acknowledgment and a submission to fear. Two middle fingers up in the air, I'm not scared of anything.
