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

I am the wolf
tearing through the forest
nostrils flaring, jaws snapping
as I sink my claws into my prey,
snapping stringy sinews
and shredding soft skin
and I swear to God
I have never felt so alive.
By chance,
I catch my reflection gleaming back from those lifeless eyes.
Blood drips from my jaw
like I, as a pup,
had fearfully watched it drip
from the jaws of my father
and I swear to God
I hate being a wolf.
