Michael Lind



Of me may it one day be said:
“I thought he was already dead!”


I sometimes think, when I am bored,
it might be nice to have a horde.
My needs are modest, though, and can
be answered by a tribe or clan.

To a Neighbor

I wish that I could be as wild
as wolves or tigers or your child.
