COYOTE STEPS OUT

Coyote steps out of the setting moon
onto a trail worn by deer
along a path trampled by cows
through a gate long ago sprung
across a lawn carefully tended
over a road maintained by the county
into a ditch sodden with runoff
past red osier tangled and joyful
around a wetland slumbering still
through an orchard dreaming of bees and then
Coyote enters the rising sun
