    Won't you keep the wolves from the door?
    I hear em scratching like I don't know better.
    Won't you keep the wolves from the door?
    It won't be long before I cave in and open up the door.

    you have this affinity
    for things you built with your
    own two hands
    have this obsession with creation
    that's why you learned
    to grow berries from the ground up
    why you write poems about every person you meet
    why you taught yourself to make wine, crepes, bread
    and they call you the god of
    the feeling that life is worth it, after everything
    you used to wander the aisles of the supermarket
    at three in the morning
    because you worked overnights
    called the glow of your headlights home
    and fell in love with the way people looked
    as silhouettes moving in the dark
    and you called yourself the god of
    the moon as seen through the windshield on your way down the highway
    she was an outline
    filled herself in with water colors and doubt
    made herself a collage
    skin all magazine clippings and faded photos
    she walked quiet
    talked soft
    touched soft
    and you named her the god of
    long nights and tangled hair
    you borrowed strength from the god of
    the promise you make to yourself that you will be better
    allowed yourself to become clay in the hands of the god of
    paint bleeding through paper
    share a bed with the god of
    patches of sunlight cast through the blinds
    and this world is so full of minor miracles
    minor gods
    hands like steeples,
    eyes like stained glass windows
    and that's why the deities of ancient lore
    stay where they belong
    because war is ugly
    the hunt is violent
    time is fleeting
    and no one would worship at the altar of dedication
    if not for the god of the sound of particularly tender laughter

    What kind of things did I talk about before? I have no idea how I managed to fill so many pages when I was younger.
