A tanka written by Lee Sonogan
Luxury is the wolf at the door and its fangs are the vanities and conceits germinated by success. When an artist learns this, he knows where the danger is. – Tennessee Williams
Canis kite shoo-in
Wearing sheep’s clothing canid,
Ward financial ruin.
You don’t like it that I am the one you need to keep the wolf from the door; that comes as no surprise. But I am the one you have. At some point we’ll both have to risk telling the truth. – Juliet Marillier
