tigers (day 175)

tigers in cages
pacing for release
pressing their fur
into the chain link fence,
roaring their dominance,
one over the other,
demanding to be
the first to feed.

not so very different,
observed from the observer,
watching from a safe distance,
marveling at their ferocity
while harboring anger of their own
at all different, separate,
then returning to their cages
of work and home.
