Is it the will of a lion that fortifies us with bravery?

Or do humans infuse the animal with heart?

I have peered into his center, an adventurer with a penchant for poetics,

peeling layers, shedding skins, existing in the of, 

novelty: lustrous & rich

with shifts in perspective & prospect,

his eyes speak out melodies;

of dreams transcending body;

contained by the knowledge in sensuality, mind leans toward,

a vivid endorsement for connection
