He’s An Animal

He looks overworked at only half past noon.
I know it is because of late nights spent howling at the moon.
Sadly, for him, morning always comes too soon.

You think I mean he is a party animal, who neglects responsibility.
I mean literally an animal whose transition is ruled by the moon’s gravity.
I know because I’m the one who bit him, and I think he might still be mad at me.
