Woofies (Explication)

Sufi Werewolves called 'woofies'
still wear wool, and if the moon
urges their lycanthropy to blossom,
their howl is their zikr.

Like a rose of fur and fangs,
the المستذئب thirsts for the wine
of the beloved, and often finds them
wandering in the garden.

This poem is the result of a homophonic english to english
translation of werewolf. The word Sufi means, 'he who wears wool',
or werewool(f). That (f) is my hand performing the lycanthropy
of the poem.
