Natural Routines

with me still on the inside
everything safe
we learned how to stay up late

we learned each other very well

we loved our windows
and we had no intention that anyone should go to any places any where
but the one thing we both wanted anyway was a way out of home

the house belonged to us
we could be very proud of it
we had two daughters
there was only so much we could do to keep them from the wild animals

we can’t see anything when we’re home,
only the light coming toward us,
only the silent wolf, staring at us
the only other thing to witness these things

no other humans had been allowed to have any part in this new world

we do not want to go with wolves, we told the daughters.
the wolves have a plan to take you back to where you came
we could not bring you to be with the wolves

our relationship is not over and our hearts still bleed love and the love remains and the love reminds and the love remembers and we will not let the wolves take the love from us
