WAY OF THE LION


 Rain falls
  where it will.
And when rust grows
it is obedient
  to its own
  nature.

  A sadist
  kneels on the ground
  to cry over
the death
  of a May flower.

It is the way
  of the lion.
  The lion in
  official clothes.
The lion who wishes
he were
a dragon.
And the dragon

who wants
only to become
  the

  sky.
