Wow I’m honored by this great response poetry! Hope y’all enjoy reading this piece like I did.
I love the closing lines on this one, “Strong beating heart found to give chase Incisors laid, jugular vein, razor sharp.”
I loved the idea. The iconic image of London’s dogs of the wild. Maybe the real wolves run wall street.
And the rolling topography
With its subtle curves
Has become oppressive
Under the gaze of big brother.
The cold metallic wolves
Eating bit after bite
Of the earthen crust
Species of predators
Filed under Carhart, corporate affairs
To crucify the totems
We once worshiped
Watchful eyes roam landscapes dark Attentive ears tune into its mark A serious game played, hunting prey As hunger pains echo from the day The warning growl silences singing lark Strong beating heart found to give chase Incisors laid, jugular vein, razor sharp
