lamb meets wolf man

Advertisements

sergei pankejeff’s tree of white wolves
veil of blankness the analyst’s notepad
on day one narrative of infancy
a row of walnut trees in the window

sheepdogish wolves with big fox tails
ears pricked up like dogs sensing terror
he calls the nurse’s name who censors
the story freud records for his posterity

better to say the wolfman opposed
to sergei pankejeff better the screen
to project the film than to penetrate
with pen knife call the light a lie

figurative wolves devour real ones
on any given day scare the patient
so far beyond shitting his pants
he can’t even go no. 2 with enemas
