April’s PAD — Day Nine

April 9, 2014

Prompt: write a shelter poem

 

Keeping Shelter

You kept me under your skirt
guarded against the wolves
Nights tucked tightly into bed
latches double locked
but I could still hear their howling
the smashing of glass in the alley
and their clawing at the door

You kept me safe
’til cancer claimed you
I was tossed out of my safe home
and into a home with wolf pups
they tested me daily
sniffing at the door to my room
and yelping at night

I lived in fear until I was eighteen
and then I was tossed out again
fear became terror
I was exposed to the wolves
no where to hide
They followed me day and night
lewdly pawing at my skirts

I didn’t know who to trust
’til he roamed in
He didn’t seem like a wolf
not like daddy or the pups
I let down my guard
pulled up my skirt
and let him have his way with me

Soon I had my own pups
with shewolves to protect
and male pups to train
I didn’t want them to become wolves
but then their father threw me away
took the pups under his arms
and left me and the shewolves in the rain
