Long, lean, and lanky
Felix moves his shirtless frame
down Kensington Ave
with a lion like grace
that shouts loudly above
the roar and shriek
of the El overhead.  

Felix prowls proud,
here in our beloved
urban savannah.

Sorry James, Anna doesn't live here any more.  It's a different Savannah.

Felix is an intriguing character, and I like the way you use him to convey a variety of themes in the human experience. The enigma of being embodies the whole of suffering, delight, and bewilderment. You have a fine writing style, and your poetry is most enjoyable.

Felix is on the prowl indeed.  It may be his jungle but let`s hope he isn`t devoured by it.
