Wolf and Pilot tells the story of four sisters--Elsianne, Matilda, Emaline and Aubrie--who have run away from their witch-mother. Looming in corners, hiding in holes, "living near people," the girls observe the detective on their case, their much-loved teacher, and the witch-mother from a near distance. Through shifting perspectives that fuse together in a collective voice, these poems are grounded in the eerie world of fairy tales and explore that world through a childlike, voyeuristic eye.
