Animal Observer

How is he with animals?
A creature which knows confinement, that cannot tell us how,
look to them and know how he knows him.

Look, does he pity them? Then he excuses his lack of will.
Smother them? He thinks he wants that for himself.

Indifferent to the creature? He fears his own impermanence, a regrettable impotence.
Adore them? He is consumed by a glacial isolation.

Watch him: does the animal respect him?
Not adore him: trust him.
