Madness and Mothering
Isabelle5

She found a coyote's den,
 1
discarded her clothes,
 2
crouched down.
 3
 
 
Howling came easily
 4
from her throat
 5
like a purr
 6
 
 
and the dominant male,
 7
though lacking in grace,
 8
made his way to her place,
 9
lent his shade to her shelter.
 10
 
 
Pups born that Spring
 11
had hands like stars,
 12
tails clipped in ribbons
 13
and they sang of meat,
 14
fresh and sweet.
 15
 
 
They took her away
 16
in a sirened wagon,
 17
wrapped in a cloak
 18
of coyote skin,
 19
her hands fingering wet stains
 20
that looked like stars
 21
printed in blood.

What is this poem about. The title has madness in it. That can explain the surreality of it. Lets say bob dylan would get this.
