Wolves are God

Wolves are God

My God

Lives in silence

My men

Leave me for friends

For other women

For war

My singleness


My skin walls

Are brittle


When caressed

To escape


Mothers who

Lament the void

I am leaving behind

To escape into

My children who


My obscurity

My children who

Sleep restless pretty

My children who

Grow up to be wolves.
