New Poem: Werewolf Ghazal
Werewolf Ghazal was composed as a continuation of my exploration of the Urdu ghazal form. The qafia is "--ear," and the radif is "after the change." I used "gore" and "done" in the "signature" couplet. The poem explores the internal conflict within the werewolf between man and beast. I envision the beast as still having a human heart and with it human emotions such as anger and shame at its condition.
