Not Werewolves

It is my fate

to love such creatures so

terribly affected by the phase of

the moon.

Dark depression,

bright sun mania

like a morning at

midnight.

And I am caught here

in the middle.

I see in your wide pairs of eyes

as the madness takes hold

and your footsteps creak the floor

above me at 3am

pacing in circles

for hours

to the same song

over and over.

You are puppies

off of your leashes

and I must stop you before

you cause more destruction

to the neighbor's crops and

gardens.

And always before I can grab you

you fly off as an eagle

or jump away like a serval,

white with red eyes, the both of you,

like the Celts warned me about.

And then you are dragged home,

My foolish paddies, cursing the English cops,

covered in bruises and blood,

But whose is it?

And here I'll stand, covering for you,

between your fun-house reflections

bouncing hectically

off of each other.
