Italiano: Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli, “Gabinetto Segreto” – Statua del dio Pan intento ad accoppiarsi con una capra – Rinvenuta negli scavi archeologici di Ercolano, nel giardino della Villa dei Papiri. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
The wild emerges, antlers raised
Ancient eyes excoriate the horizon
Bellowing echoes across crevices
and caverns of funereal thought
Hunger stalks its prey
Carnivorous dreams etched deep
on tattooed, ravaged skin
Wearing the mark of Cain
as a badge of dubious honor
Clawing hands demand offerings
from the very depths
Jaws widen and teeth gleam
against silvered moonlight
while the forest trail tapers
to a point of deathless, fearful
no return; all innocence bled out
like scarlet notations from a cruel author
on a snow-covered woodland floor
