They say SEE something SAY something
WE SAW vigor
He FELT fervor
We SAW velocity
He FELT ferocity
If you did not SEE it before that day, you saw it then

Should I just go down as being raw, crude
liquid black, dark, chunky, rough hewn

Heat trapped the smell of

presidents and dictators,
and their ladies
They’re not here to shrill
Sometimes the hunters and the hunted
do a stare-down,
