The Lioness Beside Him - Poem by Antonio Liao

'Tonight when I go to sleep
I assign myself a problem,
without trying to solve the problem, '
he said.

Then during his waking moments,
between consciousness
and slumber,
he revisits the problem.

'It is a great time for creative thinking, '
he said.
'You can think of new connections,
new approaches that you
wouldn't otherwise think of.'

he finally said
and then made the final remarks
of surrendering
to the lioness
beside him

eating all his dreams
