Reflections on Art and Life

Inspiration

What was the inspiration
For the second word
In the third stanza?

You who grant passage
To understanding
Through autopsy
Of defenseless frogs
Observe the tiny lungs
Still inflated
Against all hope
The heart shivers
In agony

Nowhere to hide
Except behind a few
Bare words
The soul is still
Invisible
