The latest word from the stable
is that the bull you plan to fight
wants nothing to do with you.

He feels you are below him,
and that to gore you will only
bring shame on his family.

This information has been gleaned
from the marks he makes in dirt,
the quick left, the slow right.

If you wish to send him a message
you need to get down on all fours
and convince him you’re worthy.
