Wolf Shadow

by Shira Dentz

They say 
we went out on a limb, 
rustling more  
than flame 
between cracks, 
heat-packs. 

Moonlight hides, someone wrote
as if the truth shows 
itself once  
a month, on 
schedule. 

The same  
goes for the entire  
secret. 
They say 
shadows are clues,  
nothing more.

They say shadows are clues, nothing more.
The same goes for the entire secret. 

On schedule, 
as if the truth shows itself once a month,
moonlight hides, someone wrote. 

Between cracks, heat-packs 
rustling more than flame. 
They say we went out on a limb.
