The Tiger Man

In the Jainitia Hills
lives a man
who transforms
into a tiger at night
prowling among
monoliths and forest
on paws with fingers
and toes

The villagers tell me
what he does is rnigew
and there’s no way
to explain it
in words I would
understand

Not a shapeshifter
or a shaman
but something of
color and light
this man with
an ordinary face
and hands formed
by soil and rock
who lives in a world
beyond translation
