The Wolf Within

I was telling this chic
(that looked like
Mike Ness, but
without tattoos)

about Wyoming
making it legal
to hunt wolves,

while we smoked
outside of a bar.

Behind us, a barber pole’s
motor ran, but
nothing turned.

It was more
candy cane than
spiraling down.

She asked if I ever
saw one die and
I replied that I had,

but I also saw it live.

On Friday, Oct. 5th, the State of Wyoming opened up hunting on Wolves. I wrote these two poems Thursday, Oct. 4th.
