Constellation

All the animals we meet
Are hungry
In line to suckle
At the wolf of rebirth

Teats dipped in saltpeter
Against sexual abandon

/

Owl perched high in Onetree
Watches in wonderment

Liplicking
Bald beasts
Slackened
Weeping

/

Above it all:

Whole-no-thing
The Antihuman

A needleless eye.
