Myth of the Wise Hero
Sound is amplified when you
scream into a bowl:
this is a valley
in the mountains.
The dumb-god pours lighter fluid
onto a trash can,
“The first time I saw a naked woman
my parents screamed,
I turned out fine,”
a burst of fire.
When his story is written in 100 years
our hero will arrive on a holy horse,
with a knowing grin.
