Implicit Sage

A dream reader tells me a wolf is Voodoo –
standing like a human behind the leaf 
of a door. I tell her it's about the way   
I will love in life.  Forcing herself between legs, 
she tracks the rites of passage. I have two
lovers; their fates too abundant, too infernal
for my handling. Every year there comes   
a dream joint to a sage. None of us unholy. 
Tonight I will see them together, she says 
both enamoured, desiring, groping. Absolve     
the lesser one, instructing me about being 
the bee in the hive that ignores the queen; 
natural selection in parenthesis – the calling of 
higher beings on full moon nights.
