In the night
after the bats come out
I hear you howling.

I know no one and
I hold nothing (now that I know you).
This is how we howl.

In the dark night on the unlit trail there's no way
through but to crawl
Perplexed by the world around me there's no way
through but to surrender my body completely.
to you
to be eaten, to be gnawed,
to fulfill the pregnant night,
and then to be born in the mornings.

(to be quiet)

    General CommentUntil you've been out in the country at night in the complete darkness there is no way to understand this song. The sound of coyotes and wolves howling is an experience in itself. I think it really is a tribute to nature's sounds while man is fast asleep.
