To My Newborn Daughter, Years From Now

Standing high upon the knot 
In my ladder years,
I claimed to be the king.
Now, the crown horrifies me.
Still some gentle cruise is within me.
Like Saturn turned upside-down.
Would we notice the madness in the crème?
If there’s anyone that’s going to point the way for you it’s me.
Not out of self-aggrandizement, out of pure love,
And full, final redemption for all my short-comings.
How do I stop the avalanche?
Why do I feel I need to stop the avalanche?
Is it really an avalanche?
Or do I like playing with visions,
Responding to my own antics with mock melodrama?
Let the bizarre stay bizarre. 
I’ll be in the corner selling coconuts.

Carnivorous Wolfman

You carnivorous beast
Do not approach me
I must love
But the other form
You eat so wrong
Both hands
Into the mouth it goes
Rare meat
Painful to watch
As whomever it was
Horrifies me
Please just go away
I’ll catch you on the return
I’ll await your transformation
To normal life
But is it really normal
Is it worth these changes
Knowing it’ll always
Be this way
Please don’t approach me
I love you
I know you love me too
Don’t come near me
Till you change back
I’ll wait…
