Lay down beside me I signaled to my wolf Three pats of the sofa in the early morn Then two pats of the heart to say why. He did it silently, no reply when one does What’s to do. I must rest my hand on you For a while for the usual reasons. This Is easy to say between wolves or wolves and people And difficult between people. For instance A person might not want to absorb by touch another’s pain Then. The wolf loves to. The person might say Oh all right, but clearly a burden to ease another’s pain. If you keep a wolf, there isn’t much more they do But they are specially good at it Like the surf loves to be splashed with a whole bottle of poison water, Try that and see if the waves don’t turn over embracing without end, Try that and see if you can find any poison after two seconds, Or slowly slide your fingers through the first layer Of your wolf’s coat to the second layer and move fingers Head to tail, tail to head, slower than slowly. Anything could have happened to you yesterday And you’d soon be okay. But first get a wolf.
