Animal Life

We all have an animal life
where we mark out territory
with passive-aggressiveness
pretend to smile
when we’re bearing our teeth

Put pain in a bottle
swallow
drink yourself to death
on sorrow
don’t wallow

Build a habitat
made of promises
and better days

Find a herd
join a pack of true friends
hunt your dreams together

Howl at the moon
because you’re excited
we only have one shot
at our animal life
so don’t waste it
