Wolf Time

The hero Hawking offered his hand
to be placed in the mouth of Wolf Time

while they bound him in a chain forged
from the death-cries of unstable atoms.

The fragile hands of clocks could not hold him.
Slime dripped from the gaping jaws

and poisoned Hawking: he rides now
in the sky-chariot of his own mind.

Wolf Time waits to be freed by the wild-
haired trickster who stole the dice of the Universe.

Wolf Time waits to devour the sun and moon.
