i see words curling in hair
spirals and threads;
about love and redemption 
you dyed it red
as restlessness; slinked
fox-like to dark
(the hunters are hated)
my pelts and my dead
skinned, thinned rust raw
wolf head, wolf-jaw
run through the air
(spirits of bodies)
talons, chasing
hooks of bright lead
(i dare)
deepen forests, moors
the wounds
wet with whispers
as your face
shadows dawn.

    no joke, i've read this three times already and i'm still in awe. i'm in love with the way you write your poems, your style, the way you weave such vivid descriptions in just a few words without rambling or going on and on (something that i still have trouble with). technically this poem is one long sentence, so it would make sense for it to feel overly lengthy or rambling, but it doesn't at all. fantastic work!
