In case the rain brings with it cold winds

 

This won’t be the first time I’ve fled
Dying love and self-constructed
Prisons of desperate routine
Those amulets of denial
Rubbed one too many times always
Fail to keep the wolf at the door
Once we howled for each other’s blood
Now we curl up contented tame
Listening to the rain—waiting
To see who’ll make the first move
The slightest twitch and one or both
May make a break for somefarwhere
