Canis Familiaris

Come on, wolf, and let us play

Though all my days you’ve stalked me

Through every hour of my life

Down every hall and highway.

 

Come let us race and chase and

Roll and tumble intertwined

I cannot escape you, and

You cannot devour me.

 

Come on, wolf, and chase me home

To where the lion and the lamb,

Mental illness and the man

Lie down in peace together.
