ego, te absolvo
divine the snow leopard, if you can.
which is to say: divine silence.
stillness. the way the mountain
invests the cat's presence
until it's cousin to stone,
inherent & sovereign,
a geography revealed
only as hunger yields
its object. seek to know what
does not seek you--what would
sooner share your blood
than your embrace. taut
ecstasies of the animal.
the trail of an ego gone feral.
