the night is almost
still but full of dreams that howl
or is it laugh?

cold wild whispered cries
a friendly-faced child falling
through the icy wind.

Just caution: it's very raw and open. Not a lot of people are used to the things he details. But it is an interesting poem.

I love the alliteration in this poem. And the title too. It reminds me of Ginsberg's Howl. Although, that poem is a lot different from this.
