drowns out the sound of everthing and suffering

until exhaustion makes way to an empty, furtile space.

the strength of the lion, weighing down like an anchor

protects that wounded beast and her offspring

from greedy vultures circling above.

A flash of teeth and the stench of rotten, once agile meat

is travelling along the hot air of his mighty
