She Dreams

She dreams of science, dreams of progress,
dreams of wolves running over
(wolves coming for her)
wolves running over the field
(wolves in the fold).

She dreams of marriage, dreams of babies,
dreams of wolves running over
(wolves coming for her)
wolves running over the field
(wolves in the fold).

She dreams of holy orders,
withdrawal from this world,
she dreams of
god the feather,
god the sun and moon,
god the goat, she
dreams of wolves running over
(wolves coming for her)
wolves running over the field
(wolves in the fold).

She believes there must be meaning
in these dreams.
She would pluck them each apart
at their seams
and feed them to you,
and feed them to you.

She would watch the birds flying and wonder what it meant,
what message they had sent.

She would unravel her entrails and read them if she could,
she wants only to be good.
