Ballad of the Lone Wolf

the melody of
ozone constricted
lungs wheeze with every
pull of breath
mate’s outro from
glacial winds
even her pelt
couldn’t inhibit the
ritardando of her heart
that silenced her song
the duet of our voices
calling to the void
is now one
a solo
voice bursting
with despair
as the crescendo
of my hymn fills
the dreary sky with one
unharmonized howl
