From a place outside the womb
twin wolves were conceived-

life and death.

And in a dream, a long necklace
ribboned like the grape vine

fed them.

To live among wolves,
one must know how to resemble them:

to look away,to bow and roll,
to bend without breaking.

In the air above them, falcons stare
as if what struggles on the ground

below them

is senseless.
