I want to be pack
led by a raven's spiral.
Running down rabbits, moon drunk.
Moon blessed.  A moon choir.

Fur freeze thick.
Teeth bared
at bare-limbed winter.

I want to be pack.
I've already been
pride and murder.

For The Tuesday Platform at Real Toads

There are times I feel most content to be part of a pack.

Magaly Guerrero said...

What a delicious menagerie!

Pack is so much better than murder... but I could go for skein myself..

Sherry Blue Sky said...

This is wizardly! Love "moon drunk. Moon blessed. A moon choir". And having already been pride and murder. Yes, very clever!

Sylvia K said...

Ah, a clever one you are indeed, MZ!! I do love this one -- of course I tell you that every day, but I do mean it -- every day!!

Nice three-pack of verses, MZee. Our county commissioners have decreed there will be no PACKing of heat at our Houston rodeo. "Guns don't belong in the family atmosphere."
BT W, I think I heard on the news that the fellow who shot the little boy by mistake in a fit of road rage has been apprehended.

Many the careers of those who careen with the wolves!

Sioux said...

The phrases "raven's spiral" and "moon drunk" are especially delightful.

Marian said...

BE the pack, the whole pack!

Carol Campbell said...

Amazingly creative!

Jae Rose said...

I love the hunger and eagerness..like a full moon in full glorious flight

Bekkie Sanchez said...
