I am woman of the moon
dangling from my ear
Next to her a garnet
offering of blood
Pierced by tooth of cat
with many lives to live
Stealthily I slink
one shadow to the next
A chaplet made of mole claws
I wear around my neck
For digging through the dark
for feigning sleep uncovered
Feathers of a crow
are tangled in my hair
Cawing with a vengeance
shrieking in my head
The rattle of a snake
incites my bones to dance
Moon dangling from my ear
in wildermadness sways.
