Did you ever see
a mantis praying for its prey,
a lion letting go,
a snake with antivenom tears
or a broker breaking down
if he have won?
Did you ever see the
sorrow hiding in the shadows on a day
when sky is clear?
Did you ever search below the fronds
to find the soil of corpses underneath?
Did mirrors lie or tell the truth?
How many questions can be asked
for every answer told?
