Grass lies beige, geese gather gray.
I hike the trail, glad for my fur coat
to blend in…

Why the sense of outsider
when I am not?

I follow switchbacks up the mountain
to a break in the cliffs. On the far side
is a meadow known for magic herbs
that bestow wisdom, longevity.

I need both! The trail is slippery, a maze!
Rocks tumble down, graze me—

The geese fly off.

                      A timber wolf!
She snatches my rations, sprints up
the trail, looks back as if
daring me to follow.

                      More wolves appear—
Two drag me through the gap
to a cave…for their dinner?

Nightfall. They disappear…
