Wolf Song

Lisa DeCastro

I am an onyx pearl

Inside your shell

Rolling on your tongue

Swallowed

Implanted

A stone in the underbelly

In a jeweled state of unrest

Waiting to be released

Uninhibited

On the waves

Of your most guttural

Howl


Lisa De Castro has published three books: Margot (novella), The Beauty of Decay (poetry), and The Girls of Songwood (novel). Her poetry has been featured in Resurrection Mag, Janus Literary, Spillwords, and Twin Pies Literary.
