Favorite Quote:
There is freedom waiting for you
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh, but my darling,
what if you fly?

~Eric Hanson


The mechanical wolf

with its toes

dipped in electricity

is sprinting after its prey,

humanity,

sputtering and coughing

but there is no reason

for him to hurry.

We always run back to him.
