why not?

 what happens when a werewolf 
     suddenly reaches for your thorax 
         and leaves your broken body 
             for dead — what kindness 
               would you wish bestowed 
                  a quick burial or pyre 
                    to match that of a great
                       chief — or would you 
                          dream of a way 
                            to call back 
                              every drop 
                            of liquid plasma
                          bones start to merge
                        nothing remains broken
                      even the epidermis 
                   starts to heal from the inside 
                 to once make you whole 

                     a rebirth worthy of any phoenix
                        my feathers have molted 
                           i am reduced to a tiny
                              pile of combustible ash
                                 BOOM! SELF-EXPLODE
