Wolves

The airport is full of wolves.
So is the car hire kiosk,
the convenience store
and even the hospital.
They stand silently, watching,
eyes following my every move.
Grey and thin. Alert.
Waiting to pounce.
Padding silently behind me.
Forming a pack that waits
just outside my line of sight.
Ancient knowledge in their eyes.
Knowledge they won't impart,
and I can't ask for.
Walk briskly. Stay focused
on the airport, the car hire kiosk,
convenience store and hospital.
Ignore the pack of grey wolves
silently circling.
