release in two poems

you can imagine my apprehension
when i heard you got out of prison
we were so close once
now distant
and this tightrope
between us
is all that ties us
to the present

in your heart
arrows
insults
ravenous wolves
circling
growling
intent on devouring
the hope
that they
do not have the final word
&
there is more than one way out of the woods
