A Period of Madness
written by: Michael H. Brownstein
Blood rises through the werewolf,
the dragon tamer,
the killer of lizards,
the lover of osmosis.
Yet he cannot let go.
Moonlight knows nothing of the sun’s heat,
nothing of snow's burn,
nothing of the scars binding one enemy to another,
but he can hear its frantic heartbeat
faster, faster, faster until--
Dawn festers into blue sky with a whisper
and the full moon slips away into shadows.
