These Days As Ever

In Celtic knot-work bordering on life
innocent animals tangle with dragons.
In thickening crowds, as far as I can see
it's the mood portrayed in loud tattoos.

It's the lamb torn by the wolf's jaw;
snakes aloft in the eagle's claw.
How many like me would race away at that 
silent bell: a straight line out of the maze.

Love those last two lines Adam W., their meaning not so much untangled as emerging out of mist.
Go well

Brief but to the point that. Tangling with dragons eh. I think I might have met one or two of them in my time. As to tattoos, my parents always warned against having them. Can't understand why so many people I see locally are covered in them. Personally I think they mar the skin but what do I know! Evocative use of words though your poem. Enjoyed.
