#1 — tigerman – you would / have me dwell in the prison / of your yellow beard
yours is a tobacco stained / primitive philosophy

#2 — tigerman – you melt / the snow on that thick mustache / and make me eat it
when all is said and done – i like / how you wield your neat whiskers

#3 — tigerman – i walk / the hard roads of your city / in the oily night
and still you are my only / shop – my only apartment

#4 — tigerman – lord of / the snows – harvester of rust / benighted howler
your smoke blacks out the sun as / i fall into the glass sea

#5 — tigerman – lay down / your red axe – make camp deep in / the cold pine forest
peel off my skin – oil the meat / and season me with your spice

#6 — tigerman – i want / to cut your hair – but you are / too pleased with your tail
to keep from tearing up at / your strong sexual odor
