at night with sand and wolves

the tablets where there

as societies protection,

as the waves in my mind

know no shore

to wash upon,

crushed i did not take them

scattered as broadcast seeds

that would never yield

a crop,

impulses long dark strangers

that occupied all living

space of my mind

tainted by coppery blood

that was not my own,

cities had corners

without lights

where i would stand

unnoticed and silent,

i watch you

i know you,

and i will wait

for you are my focus now,

before i move to the
