Deep in the woods expectation howls.
Dogs in the night -

Fearsome hosts
And seeders of a restless dream.

Beyond the dense and faded damask,
The chill of unknown hillside

Calls and calls
Till dawn arrives with its click and whistle

And the dogs of want
Remove to secret places,

Their long and toothy faces
And ever wetted hungry maw
            At rest.

The black bird of day arrives
Big as ever.  Ever a reminder.

Ringing out Forever in her
Groundless flight from shadow to shadow.

I am awake
And wanting to be in love.

I am awake, and wait again
For the glorious sun to set.
