If You’re Going to Look Like a Wolf They Have to Love You More Than They Fear You. by Abigail Chabitnoy – Poems | poets.org

If You’re Going to Look Like a Wolf They Have to Love You More Than They Fear You.

Abigail Chabitnoy

 

The first deer had large teeth and no horns and
were not afraid.

The first deer did not have enough fear
for the men who needed them
to survive.

A woman decided to let the men eat
a grandmother decided her deer shall have horns
and be afraid
someone’s mother decided the men shall eat
and shall be feared.

*

A man thought wolves should be used
to cull the herd.

And we who had been catching water
dripping through stone
in the homes we dug
out of the earth
we licked our long teeth clean
            and set to work.

Silence, by Gregory Orr / Fiera Lingue

Silence

The way the word sinks
into the deep snow of the page.

The deer lying dead
in the clearing,
its head and antlers

transparent.
The black
seed in its brain
parachuting toward earth.

– Gregory Orr

Manyōshū exhibition @ Hounen-in / deep kyoto


The poem that accompanies this photograph in the exibition reads:

「夕されば、小倉の山に鳴く鹿は今夜は鳴かず寝ねにけらしも」
The deer that cries out
each night with longing from Mount Ogura
is silent tonight.
Maybe he sleeps early,
his longing fulfilled.

Deer in the Dark by Christina Pacosz

Deer in the Dark

 

Between Halloween
and Dia de los Muertos
the light is gone
early

 

Only the telltale crackle
of fallen leaves

 

 

Followed by a flash
of white
surrender’s
ghostly flag
in the sumac

 

Deer
moving away
