Wolf Moon

Forgotten all day
the Wolf Moon hungers and howls
contained by the sun

Expectant with light
see it struggle to rise from
horizon’s cushion

Now considered tame
it never shows its dark side
except to the mad

Disguised by the glow
its craggy face knows distance
preserves the allure

Liberated from
restraints, wantonly engorged
it prowls the night sky

How can we envy
Saturn’s profusion of moons
when full with just one

After consuming
admiring glances, this Wolf
still hungers for more
