Out Come the Wolves

I wrap myself in sleeves of black
Dark days and all that
And tonight the moon is full
So out come the wolves
I suppose
And the little girl
Who lives next door is in love with vampires
She dresses in all black
She cuts her hair in extreme ways
She mopes and hates like a full grown man
“Why no smiles today?” I ask her
“What is there to smile about?” she counters
Her life is all hellfire and brimstone –
A single mother who fucks like an old whore
Chasing after some teenage fantasy of Love
A life unfolding in obscene ways
Disintegrating day by day
But the moon is full tonight
“So smile,” I tell her
“Because out come the wolves…”

– A.Ramirez
