NATURE KNOWS
(11/18/14)


the wolf
was huge

at least
huge enough
to easily hold
my head
in his jaws

huge enough
to speak somehow
around my
skull

maybe
it was telepathy
since wolves
can't talk

I was dreaming
so who the
fuck
knows

"he's been
doing
so well

for so
long

but now
he whines
and complains
continually

the kindest
thing
would be
to kill him"

a very
eloquent
and thoughtful
animal

I wanted
to argue
but didn't want
to seem to be
whining

or complaining

so I waited

feeling the teeth
digging firmly
into my scalp

eventually
I awoke
and have since
been very
quiet

at least
for the
morning
