Mark I. Kirkmeyer

WOLF WARRIOR

He stands strong
Desert camouflage uniform
Deer skin moccasin boots
Woven loincloth
Cross, tablet, scroll pattern
Wolf-head helm
No facial hair
Dark tan skin
Topaz blue eyes
Bow slung on back
Staff held in right hand
Darkness flows
From fallen warrior
Absorbed by staff
Blood and tar black fluid
Erupt from wolf warrior’s mouth
Absorbed by the ground
Blessing and Curse
Good and Evil
All in balance
Suffering and relief
