When did you start speaking with snakes?
Did you start seeing their faces in the trees and hearing their soft whispers in your dreams?
Unveil yourself she said
The world deserves to know
Show them your truth
Fall into the dream
Beneath the depths
Remember when you told the children you were raised in the woods by feral felines?
Before you learned to make fire
You wore the mask of a thousand animals
You ran barefoot and wild with the pack
Just another part of the circle
Wrapped in stars and eternal
