Point of View

These are transparencies between time & space,
Pork-rinds which when held against light

Yield to sight pores thru which a pig
Once perspired. A pig is on fire!

Killing itself at 365 m.p.h., and
There will be no

Death, I am
(I am afraid)

by Wong May
from A Bad Girl's Book of Animals (1969)
