the wolf laughs. confident with the elegant charms of predators. the hunt resolves. in a poetry of corpses. the art of death echoing loudly in the blood of the living.

soft crowns spend the light. trembling staircases in the futility of Darwin.

she wears the storm. in a fury of weather. negotiating every raindrop.

her journey all outlines. the destinations colors. convinced by the crayons. she tentatively begins to fill them in.

the ubiquitous end. the loquacious start. the impossible devils of progress.

the animals bear their fangs. loyalty trumped by hunger.

the collapsing stairs. pressing us higher, even as gravity has other designs.
