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.
