Wolf - Poem by Maurice Rowlands

You are not alone
Lupine
Howling up to the inviting glow of the moon
Beautiful She-Wolf
Tethered by chains

You are not forsaken
Lupine
Squinting up to the blast of the sun
Damned nocturnal creature
Tethered by night

You are not mistaken
Lupine
Mistaken for mere canine
Eyes glistening
Tethered by fear

You are not shaken
Lupine
Howling because we have lost you
Beautiful creature
Tethered by prejudice

Come back to us
We are tethered by our fear of you

Lupine
