Wolf’s Bane

Sometimes
the
moon
looks
like a lonely
cut lemon

makes me
act real
quiet-
ly

never
howling
screaming
or running
naked

it’s
not that
I don’t want
to…

it’s
just that
I don’t want
to

get caught.

thought I had vision
contemplating universe
wearing glasses now

sometimes
when I’m stuck
drinking with other men
they try to drink more
or quicker
or weirder

they begin to slur
talk shit
and stare
at my wife’s tits
while telling
their own wives to fuck off

they want more
they want something
they think
they don’t have

but they’ve never
been inside the E.R.
with a bleeding ulcer
or behind the bars
of the Navy brig
or in bare knuckle
fights for life

there are
no easy shortcuts,
just ice it down
and make sure
the lawn
stays
nice and green
