In the Land of Injured Wild

Here there is no man
no one-eyed man
no blind man
no people

In this land of loss
dwell the wild and once domesticated

It is said our blind lead blind
others in a place we willingly call Home

In the land of Injured Wild
a blind dog leads
a one-eyed dog
safe in their acuity
