I Can Endure Anything

the time for words
is over

(they usually convey
only the platitudes
of habitual disquiet)

the fearful one is dead

this lioness here:
she has seen
floods and raging fires
been prey
and predator

she can endure anything:
the radiance of your face
your slaughter-house eyes

Look at me!
i tell you:

i can endure anything
