lions not eating me

lion tamers are pretty cool.   not the ones in cages,
but the ones out on the bare scrub savannah with

full-faced fair regard.

but to say “tamer”, that’s less precise than saying,
the-one-who-doesn’t-get-eaten-today.

a chair or whip would spoil everything!

what more to ask of love?
