I am the Steppenwolf
The wolf of the steppes
I haunt the boundaries
Between the tame
And untamed places.

Creature of the margins
Into the city I come to foray
Then retreat to the wilds
Racing up the high crag with my prey
Thrilling at the wildness at my heart’s core
Feeling the earth’s heart beat
The strangeness of my being
Creature of the shadows
Friend of the goths
Privy to dark mysteries
And darker delights
Admired and feared
Mythologized and hunted
Unsettling the settled
I howl at the moon.
