The Names

The Names

Mr. Palmer,
Cecil was not food.
He was friendly
and nodded to people.
You left his cubs
I believe that the earth
is not pleased with you.

The ancestors
of lions
are roaring inside your pillow,
and the night has released
their names.

It would be best
if you crawled outside
your insulated lie/life
and listened.
