Beautiful And Ferocious

wolf

There is something to be said for female wolves,

the way they make it look so easy.

As if protecting their tribe with bare teeth

sinking in tissue and flesh is as easy

as dining on a 5 course meal.

I like their lady-like saunter, head held high,

queens of the forest.

But mostly, if I’m being truly honest,

I like that they’re female.

As if this large, dangerous animal

is also a part of me.

That somewhere in this delicate skin

lies a ferocious heart of a wolf.

Don’t you want to believe it?

Don’t you want to remove my shirt and

see her, teeth barred, thinking,

no, knowing, that she will

stop at nothing

to protect what’s hers.
