another dream of wolves

another dream of wolves

pushing against soft

black beneath

wet footed

arrow sharp

a hunger clothed in

bristling fur

all breath and heartbeat

and chest

bone burning with

marrow fires

mouth full of night


her secret names

spoken electric

through the veins

teeth raised

older altars

to the moon

sharp with shadow

lunular and shinning

with winter light


our bodies join

in an arch

dark pressing

against dark
