Wolf Eyes

wolf eyes watch from the shadowy light

yellow glow

falling embers punch black craters

in the dead leaves below

the wolf’s breath

fans the black flames


forests erased

regrown as black spires

the wolf’s empire

yellow eyes

watch from the light

as the world struggles

from the liquid ash


the wolf’s eyes drown them

in the mercuric remains that run yellow

calls down the moon

to join the earth

liquid ash meets roving fire


flashing shadows hide the wolf


the terrors of those ghostly

floating eyes

haunt the black rivers

and yellow sky
