The fires are getting bigger and bigger

and the jaguars burn their paws as they

roam the land of Pantanal

My heart breaks

when I watch photos from the Brazilian states of

Mato Grosso

and Mato Grosso do Sul

of these beautiful cats


and with their legs wrapped in white

bandage to heal from

damage initially caused by humans
