Georges Vulturescu

    The She-Wolf and the Letter
    The she-wolf gnaws the flesh of her leg to escape
    the hunter’s trap,
    walks away on its wound maddened with pain, pushes aside
    the bushes, grass, clumps of earth,
    searches for its mate and goes deeper into the thicket
    to mate beneath the lightning.

    There are letters that tear themselves loose in just the same way
    for the wedding with other letters

    but some of them remain in the fever of the brain
    just like beasts that do not flee from a blazing forest
    but fling themselves into the heart of the firestorm.

    From Lightning is Lonelier than the Beasts
       2.
    Old Man Hum? says: “Yesterday when I climbed the cliffs
    I sat to rest awhile on a stone. Beneath its cold surface
    I felt a spark moving, like a fetus
    in a mare’s womb…”

    Before a storm arrives, the bolts of lightning dwell
    in the hidden hollows of the clouds.
    Before you take the stones in your hands and knock them together,
    the spark hides in the stone’s core.

    Only fire is able to draw the sky near to the earth.

    I return to my wolves in the North:
    in their eyes I saw the letter
    ready to howl its name.

    “I have hardly anything to give you, dear son,”
    Father said to me one day. “But there is something
    I want to show you.” It clouded over
    but still he led me high up onto the Mountain.
    We sat ourselves among the juniper trees as a storm
    thundered over the Stones of the North. The lightning struck
    and struck again, as though onto a tray of gold. When the rain stopped
    we approached nearer. We touched the burnt
    stones, the reddish incisions. “Look: they are like
    letters, like the traces the beasts make to mark off
    their territory. And I have taught you
    to tell them apart. Lightning is lonelier than
    the beasts in the woods,” Father murmured.
