the poem, by *mrnakes
, is a haibun:wolf
lupa suckled rome's first twins; the ainu of japan believed themselves offspring of deity and wolf-kind. asena, the wolf-born, founded the empire that ruled the turkic nomads. Wolves both accompany and will be the end of the mighty god odin. the first men, killing wolf, brought death into the world for the pawnee of north america. in both christian and muslin traditions the wolf is a symbol of avarice and destruction.
wolf: revered and feared;
mercurial as the moon
whose homage you sing.
