Wolfhole - A Crowfall Poem

Recommended Posts

Pinecones and blood on the soil.
Somewhere a fragment of my hymen is down there.
I’d never be able to find it. But some werewolf or wererat could sniff it out.
A crow might take it and use it as a component in their nest.
Recycling redefined. (do you see what I did there?)

Knees to my chin, I shiver in this dirty sewer pipe.
It’s a sign.
Civilization cannot be far.
The thought occurs to me: follow the pipe into town.
Visions of a fat minotaur sweating on a bedpan raining down a shower of
gutsleet onto my divine blonde bouffant
- TOO MUCH TO BEAR FOR ANY BEAR.

I guess I’ll just whip a slimjim out of my pack and wait for my DreamLord.
The velvet waft of my health potion will draw him close.
I pray he arrives before the crows.
My bottom is still blistered from the last round…

What artwork....

 

Pinecones are examples of the dead bodies after a battle and you are the combatant who had never before seen the atrocities of war.  Unable to find the sweet protection of ignorance from what you just went through, you feel violated by the sweat and blood and tears covering your body... much not your own. The "Crow" is the kings you all fight for who builds their castle on the lives and deaths of their soldiers.

 

The only thing that makes sense is either serving or blending into the background and disappearing into obscurity.  The whole time just longing for those who promised to be there for you, to show up... yet expecting they won't.

 

 

Truly a homage to veterans all over the world.  Bravo!
