crocodile trainer
                                                         ­                                           for tourists
                                                        ­               fed on stage for many years
                                                           ­                            this moment today
                                                           ­      arm bitten in crocodile's mouth
                                                           ­                                  in the audience
                                                        ­                              a  human jumps up
                                                              ­            opened crocodile's mouth
                                                           ­                         between sharp teeth
                                                           ­                bleeding crocodile's food
                                                            ­              took the crocodile's friend
                                                          ­               skilled triner out of death
                                                           ­                               murmur...gossip
                             ­                                                                  "wild animals
                                                         ­                                     even if trained
                                                         ­                             just a wild animal."
                                                        ­                                              quiet stare
                                                           ­                                               "human
                                         ­                                           no matter how good
                                                            ­                                            social life
                                                            ­                                    only human."
in the swamp
where all are seen
as a prey
like the stage.
