Tiger In A Mall Display

oh green eyed one?
lounging  against bars 
of clinical steel;
sanitized sawdust laps
against enormous paws.
faux velvet roping
red as blood
stays the many gawkers 
from your gleaming fangs.

a presence greater than thunder
in the Sumatran mountains
colour clear, rich, black and...Read More

In my dreams
I've wrestled great whites,
plucked tail feathers
from swooping eagles,
stared down a Sumatran tiger,
laughed at black bears,
& with one punch
decked an angry hippo,

caressed to exhaustion
writhing boas,

facing off
with that

Forest dwindling, disappearing
Shrinking by illegal logging
Teak for tables, chairs and...Read More

Slowly pacing a captive rail,
her gaze pierces beyond red stars
eyes with burnt ire, a tigress howls
bellowing through jungles afar;

As pride of  theme parks, she deplores
the ropes leashing an alluring gait,
others like her, in silence weeps
on circus grounds, in king's...Read More

A Letter from Indonesia
Dear Home:

Please forgive my departure, silent and without warning, like the simmering 
warmth of mountain springs that bubble, unexpected, in the pale tropic light of 
morning. I am now straddling the equator, my toes naked against the earth, 
tasting the...Read More
