To Lupus

Alternating masks of joy and sadness,
like the players in a Grecian tragedy,
you shift between highs and lows.

How can such powerful words stem from within madness?

Let us wongi together, lupian friend.
Let me seek out your hidden depths
and delve to your highest ideals.

There is so much more that I would know of.

wongi - from a koori dialect in Western Australia, loosely meaning 'chat'; I discovered the word in the dictionary entirely by accident and was looking for a way to use it.

lupus is latin for wolf, but no, my poem is not about Virginia Woolf
