WEREWOLVES AND THE DALAI LAMA

Adding structure and convention
to my day to enforce
ideals and happiness

Dalai Lama says “bar the door”
to practices that cause one
to feel ill,
make it such that it is not
easily possible to get
caught up in them

I am not a werewolf
but I love them

Men who would be wolfen
scraggly bearded bears
of men

Honey and bread
on the table

Butter on the knife

Crumbs on the floor

The tending of yogurt

Cheesecloth

Fruit in a bowl

These men, their stews &
hermitude

Monks

Barring the door to the
outside world
lest the outside in them
come raging through to meet
the outside out there
knashing of teeth
clashing of bones

In ancient times,
werewolves
sucking the marrow
from sacrificed
virgins

Marrow me,
marry me

Marry me
fill me up
fill up my marrow

am mirror

am wife

~ Lady
