Wolves Howl at the Moon

i sometimes/often wonder

if there’s anything

after death?

guess it’s ’cause

i’ve buried

quite a few:


my little brothers,

older relatives,

and a string of dogs

buried like bones

deeply in the yard.

some just pups

born into my hands

already still.

but let’s not

get morbid here.

there’s time


for that
