life as a camel
we cherish our burdens and carry the weight of our sorrows through the thin meat of the day long and hot in a wavering desert.
life as a dog
sitting on our haunches at the feet of the master, begging for commandment. food for the belly, and our soul, hungry we turn and learn to hide the bruises on our knees.
life as a cat
sitting in a high up place, we look down upon the wretched and dumb, licking our hands clean of the night.
life as a rat
wretched as a gutter, beautiful are the meek
life as cattle
fattened for the fire
life as a man.
