Forthcoming in the Spring issue of The Rialto. This began as 'We Were Tigers' back in 2009, part of a sequence tied to psychoanalysis and creation myths. I think it's pretty much finished now, but I am a persistent tweaker. 5 years of redrafting so far. Poetry malarkey.

Crumb Tiger by PoeticWar mixes myth and modernity in a dreamlike poem; it is very much worth a few minutes of quiet reflection. ( Suggested by wreckling and Featured by ShadowedAcolyte )

Very cool, I must say. I really don't get the message, though :D

The first part of this reminds me of a book I used to read to my children: Pierre.  I can't remember the author.  A hungry lion paid a call to Pierre ... but Pierre didn't care.  In fact, he didn't care about anything.  The lion said, "I can eat you, don't you see ... and you will be inside of me.  And Pierre said, "I don't care."  Of course, the moral to the story is that we should care.  Too bad Pierre didn't know about the breadcrumbs.  This is very good writing and I so enjoyed reading it ... and I congratulate you on the well-deserved DD!

Congratulations on the DD!

This is a beautifully flowing piece of writing - your years of tweaking have most definitely paid off and i hope you're proud of your work because it is amazing. I especially like the final two lines, I think the final lines of a poem are one of the most important parts of a poem, and you've ended yours excellently!
