Poetry Magnum Opus

she wolf

Recommended Posts


I dreamt of being a she wolf 

sleeping with one eye open
in a forest-in the distance i
could see my human self in 
a watchtower carved out of
my frozen tears.Laid in hospital
attached to a drip cancer undresses
feminist consciousness the moon 
howls and the sun hollas as I catheterize
it to fill me with fire. The only thing now
scene from the watchtower is a forest of
burning trees.

Hi Barry,  This is quite moving, I had no problem embracing this piece.  The images clear,  "watchtower carved out of my frozen tears"  WOW!

Enticing ... until the part about the human self sets in. Good work, Barry.
