Random Poem:

just fuck 'n do It

While lone howls
from black woods
rise to blue skies
and bright moon,
and a warm pulse
pressing hip bones
fires shivershots
flickering, “we’re not alone,”
recall, reproduce,
caught in thought
of cartoon wolves store-bought
and tired tales of tried love
or poems tied to things like those…
the howls fly by.
In one ear, out an eye.
