accomplishments of other people

relentless in their pursuit —
they, so stealth, bait
us with doubt, claw us with question.

it’s not enough to simply wake,
brush teeth and hair,
and sit calmly legs folded in the jungle.

the tiger waits, whispering, “you are all
too slow and too tubby and
too perfect to eat.”
