Moonlit agony – Trifextra story.


As moon streaks the old pond with silver,
I feel first tooth growing,
nails transforms to claws,
and cursed hair appear again.
Hunger growing, my last human thought’s:
“Hope chains will hold tonight”

Chained Prisoner by Francisco Goya

My contribution for this week’s trifextra. I’m back from my little hiatues and thought I’d write a little story using the word tooth as prompt.

  1. I really liked this, and though I don’t normally write about werewolves, it was my first thought (I did end up going with the sexy).

    because of my love of Professor Lupin from Harry Potter, I do feel for the werewolves…how achingly hard to fear the full moon.

  2. Welcome back, Björn. “and cursed hair appears again…” I love this line! The beat and emotion of it reminds me of ” and I alone beweep my outcast state.” A wonderfully literary take on the prompt. :))

  3. So nice to see you back, Bjorn, and to be able to read your poetry again. I love your reluctant werewolf–and the Goya drawing you chose as illustration.
