from Kaveh Akbar:

February 22, 2018

I’ve given this coldness many names   thinking if it had a name it

would have a solution  thinking if I called a wolf a wolf I might dull its fangs

I carried the coldness like a diamond for years  holding it close  near as

blood  until one day I woke and it was fully inside me  both of us ruined

and unrecognizable  two coins on a train track   the train crushed into one

– Calling a Wolf a Wolf (Inpatient)
