(1 of 6 Wholesome and Unwholesome Roots of the Mind)

What color is your rage?

What is the texture of your hate?
Oil or tar? Bur or thorn?
And what animal form might it take?

Describe the aftermath of your wildest revenge fantasy?

And what animal form might it take?

Put your animal selves in a room.
Or let them meet in a gorge, or on an iceberg…
What do their bodies smell like? How do they breathe?
