short circuit

like a small gas flame

to the wrist

like delusions, like blindness

when you become everyone's enemy

when wolves are majestic and beautiful

when their eyes are piercing

they look like they will devour you

when their fur is soft and

you like to run your fingers through it

but if you let them sink their

teeth into you

they will rip your flesh into shreds

and pieces that you cannot salvage
