by James Sands

I have been a raven; I have been a wolf
I have been, and I have known,
and I have lived the truth

Lie here beside me and let me breathe
let me feel what it is to be me
beside you in between

remembering when we
knew the blood, and the moon,
and the night, and the dawn

let me lust for your breath,
ragged with mine in the fog of death
in the lost of time
