Thinking in the wild is not mild.

You live by securing water.
You live by securing fire.
You live by making traps.
You live by making stockpiles.
You live by killing predators.
You live by killing prey.
You live by checking details.
You live by checking instincts.
You live by using trust.
You live by using betrayal.
You live by killing pests.
You live by killing rabid pets.

No abandoned child ever smiled.

You live alone. You live shunned.
You live in pain. You live in shame.
You live. You eat. You drink. You survive.
Every day spent even when sick, or hurt,
Or hungry, or thirsty, or cold, or hot.
When youโ€™re alone, whatโ€™s left to celebrate?
Whatโ€™s left in your mind?
Whatโ€™s being feral like?
