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
