*A “pink elephant” is a drunken hallucination.

    Lots of gin and vodka
    Enough to keep the battery terminals clean
    Enough to keep the pain at a distance
    God to howl at the moon every nite is a song I never want to sing again

    That is a remarkably gorgeous photo! And the story, though short, is captivating. I’m already wondering what could happen next if it continued. Thank you for sharing and inspiring my creativity. I feel the urge to paint something mysterious and werewolf-related now 🙂

  7. “His claws scraping the ground”… Those five words spoke volumes to me. Growling at a pink elephant was a nice touch. I’d growl too if I saw one. 😀 Love the bloody moon!
