I once saw a wolf in the woods
Felt the cold glare of its emerald eyes
I was alone and defenseless
Because I was just a child
But wolf showed me mercy
Like a noble king and not a dictator
And left me with a warning never to return to his forest again
I once saw a wolf in a zoo
His foggy eyes week and winded on mine
I stood tall but ashamed

I’m sorry I couldn’t be there for you
I didn’t notice I was still running from the past
had blurry vision cause my pace was fast
unable to build anything that lasts
bonding never occurred to me
I was so desperate to be free
running I did, away from the past

the first will be last
afraid to let you close

A wolf howls skywards
To tell the pale, waxing moon
Of the solar death
The raven squawks in flight

A man cries alone
Unaware of dark or light
In his Brexit hell

Do you have colour in your cheeks?
Do you go to sleep remembering what you seek?
Do you recall what it was like to be corporeal,

Do you wake to find your pillow wet at night?
Do you see the wolves congregating under moonlight,
and howl at your own stupidity for staying inside?
Do you stare at the files on your desk each weekday

“Sweet Katarina, dance for me”,
said the man with the black balloon,
whose face looked rather like a wolf
if glanced in the back of a spoon -
and for each dance she did for him
he would pass her another string
with a midnight helium ball
tied on to its end with a ring.
She danced until her little hands
were full of the magical twine
and the villagers all agreed
