Poem introduction

In the tradition of werewolf films, the werewolf is generally incredibly well turned out with immaculately coiffured hair. This poem, 'Teen Wolf', takes its title from a film from the 1980s starring Michael J Fox, where he is going through the transformation or transition between childhood and adulthood, and also the transition between boy-man and wolf. So this poem is about transformation.
