"If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood, and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea."

- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


Respect the elders
Teach the young
Cooperate with the pack

Play when you can
Hunt when you must
Rest in-between

Share your affections
Voice your feelings
Leave your mark

Queen Jenny Simpson-1500m-PreClassic-3:58 (Al Lacey Photography)

sometimes, it is good to be hungry

i will be a wolf once more—
i cannot be another.
Here i prowl on the bedroom floor
Bloodying who i was before
Tearing hair and heart and clothes asunder.

Something pierces in my chest;
i howl, but it shan’t cease.
Try to convince me that I’m blessed.
I pace and prowl and find no rest
And batter the girl and become the greyer beast.

i lap my dirty water in
the early morning dark,
and swallow with ample chagrin
to strain simplicity from sin,
to know what’s good and where i’ve missed the mark.

Yes - i will be a wolf again.
The hunger’s what i breathe.
i’ll chase down and embrace the pain
Until i know an honest name
My hunt will take me home, and i’ll be freed—
