Fighting against

I ain’t fighting against a bear,

A leopard,

A hawk,

An eagle,

A dog, a cat;

No, I fight me

With a little myself.

I fight not really,

I guess

I pretend,

I guess

I put up a show:

Is it convincing?

Can I look peaceful?

Yet my eyes,

Unlike his,

Rest in pain,

In pleasure of his presence;

My breath no more

Fast and slow,

Slow and fast.
