A man born of a flower in space
a man riding a stallion born by a barren mare
holding the reins of the turtle's hair
using a rabbit-tail knife
strikes his enemies

a man who speaks without lips
and sees without eyes
a man who hears without ears
and runs without legs

the sun and moon play
and they blow into the trumpets
the child touches the wheel of the law
and topples it
