A Day in the Sun

The wolves are given a day in the sun

They smell blood and egg the other on:

Circumstance or masquerade

Bound to emerge or stay safe in shade?

Ojectified

Lips stuck.  Stopped. 

Set in stony eyes. 

What was it to arrive,

set out, be still,

Speak up and thrive?

The question settled

Itself and she smiled.
