Caged Panther

His  gaze from staring through the bars

has grown so weary that it can take  in nothing more

For him it is as though there were a thousand bars

and  beyond those bars NO WORLD!

as he paces in cramped circles

his powerful  strides are like a ritual dance

around a center where a great will  stands paralyzed

at times the curtains of his eyes

lift without a  sound, a shape enters

slips through the tightened silence of the shoulders

reaches the heart and DIES!
