brought to her knees
by the pain in her head
in her body
the weight of her world
pinning her to the ground
leaving her feeling flattened
a wildflower
pressed within the pages
of a heavy book
she considered simply
baring her naked throat in submission
to the wolves with their yellow eyes
growling in a circle around her
let them finally have their way
with her
