He wants to 
raise barriers, 
unchain beasts-- 
release them to hunt, 
be hunted 

on a field 
undefined by rules 

while he 
climbs Hyperion 
to get a view, 

unaware that the ferocious 
spare no one-- 

their teeth will saw 
through the toughest wood, 
bring down the tallest tree.

  1. Hyperion {"The High One"), the god of watchfulness and observation, was the father of Helios (the sun), Selene (the moon), and Eos (dawn). His name was applied to one of Saturn's moons, since his younger brother was Kronus (time); John Herschel named the 7 known satellites in 1847, and the following year William Lassell observed a new one and followed Herschel's plan by naming it Hyperion. In 2003 the Mokdong Hyperion was completed in Seoul, making it briefly the city's tallest building at the time. In 2006 Chris Atkins and Michael Taylor discovered "Hyperion," the tallest living tree, a coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) in California; it is in the Redwood National Park, along with Helios, the 2nd tallest. In 2018 Hyperion, the tallest roller coaster in Poland, was opened in the Energylandia amusement park in Zator.
