To Keep the Wolves Away Poem

It’s good to be back
back in the fold,
in the fold, the sheep listen for the wolf
and stay in the flock
hoping to stay safe
as we all are,
as is the wolf
in the night
creeping along
like me
like the bee said the tree
like the dog said the log
as we log the time
forever waiting for tomorrow
when yesterday went by so fast
and we remember so little
because we are such imperfect cameras,
such imperfect scribes.
It is good to be back, bold
and in the fold hoping
to fit into the flock
and keep the wolves
