They trail about, packraiding

In the hardest part of winter,

Rifling through unmanned inheritances

And claiming hearts as they lie 

Newly emerged, in the wild

Where nothing is sacrosanct

They gnaw her flesh clean

Gaze up secondarily, red teeth bared,

You guys remember the girl that drove us

From Chameleon to the Bay? 

Joey had had it in the trunk,

Until the sun comes down. That’d be better...
