A Wolfish Throwback

I wolf down my food
in a gluttonous way
chomp chomp slurp slurp
Gnash gnash slurp slurp
A throwback to a previous incarnation
When I actually was a wolf, or a werewoman?
Tummy full, I rumble off into the night.
Howling now at the moon, on my favorite granite slab.
Am I scaring you, Luna? I ask, showing my red teeth.
Full of cherry Koolaide, but looking much more fierce.
Luna laughs, exposing my truth, then she winks.
She recognizes me no matter what form I take.
Her recognition causes me to slow down and pretend niceness.
Okay to be myself now, I wait for my cubs, who are struggling to keep up with my fierceness.

Ah, and the Moon always knows, but if she falls in love with you, she keeps your secrets, Kurt.

Of all of the wolves and were's I've known and not one of them has ever drunk cherry kool-aide.

Now you know. It is a secret we do not wish to tell just everybody.

I do get tired, and I took a little nap which is why I am on a "roll" at 3:45 a.m. Seriously silly as I go to work in a few measly hours. Ugh!
