POEM: Tigericity

a tiger on the prowl doesn’t reflect upon its tigerness

that’s what makes it feared and fearless

it doesn’t think it’s a tiger

it doesn’t know it’s a tiger

it certainly never wishes it was more tiger-like

it is tiger

a tiger

the tiger

questions of tigericity never arise

I believe this is an African Water Monitor, but I’m a neophyte naturalist.

DAILY PHOTO: Tarsiers

Taken on Bohol in December of 2017

Tarsiers may be the product of a five-way orgy between an owl (eyes), a bat (ears), a frog (hands), a rat (tail), and a monkey (body), but they’re still pretty cute.
