We weird wereghosts whatever we wanted
were were were.
Wednesday week were.
Wet weather weeks we were.
Were what? Were.
We werewolf-phantom hybrids whether wishing it
Or wrested wrists from handcuffs
that now wouldn’t fit
our air, and cloth-flesh
empathetic as a brother
and distance ruffled rough or light.
We were when werewraiths wound woe
weight-abandoned, wafted wondering
and wandering, wisecracking
were when we woke.
O o when we woke
forgetting our dreams and day-detail of last
years, we accidents involuntary
wailed. We remembered
non-limb from non
the aftermaths of hems underbreathing.
When the white mad moon
mountaineered last moonth
weee weeere, aaagaiaiain aaare,
looove waaas. Iiis.
When was the door slam, am?
