NaPoWriMo2017 - BARKING MAD - GloPoWriMo2017 - Day 4


Barking Mad

Aberrant
That’s what they called me

So my family kept me
in the cellar by day
in the backyard by night
where I could hear them
a growl at a passing bird
a howl at a shooting star
wild eyes in the dark

I learned to bay
to bellow
to thunder
back and forth with my brothers and sisters
frantic
feverish
they dug me out
chewed through my collar
taught me frenzied feeding
how to run in a pack

run 
run
run

bad boy

good wolf
