Animus

Dreams of you start like this,
roaring lions from constellations
in the sky
come cascading down,
consciously congruent,
slopes of ethereal blue clouds;
And enter the wen
before slipping in me,
I am neither woken
nor jolted,
I sleep;
They brush their nocturnal
animus
wailing wolves on a full
moon,
nails scratching the wood of trees,
abrading twilight;
And I am metamorphosised

a little each night,
cultivated feral;
Hunting, gathering parts of you
through dispersed scents,
returning to where I yielded
and you forfeited,
underneath ambushed skins,
and trampled leaves,
in the thick underbrush
of lost imagination.
