I must set a shape in air
and so I have chosen
the form of man.
As I am alive
I must live for my senses
and so I have my own peculiarity.

I live with my hands upon others
whose movements give me the sense of life,
my feet upon the ground for my weight
and my eyes to find their likeness,
my mind to set a seal
upon these satisfactions:
neither lion, coyote or bug,
simply this man
that I am.
