Steve Toth – Out Of Whack Coyote

Coyote2
Once when I was riding my bike
in the new housing development
just as I was passing
through an intersection
with two imaginary cross streets
a lean dog came trotting
straight at me from
out of the corn field

Only this dog had
the craziest look on its face
So crazy it was disturbing
but then I saw it wasn’t a dog
It was a coyote interrupting
my ordinary train of thought
& that crazy look was
its untamed wildness showing

I wanted to believe the coyote
wasn’t chasing me personally
but I sped up anyway
only not fast enough
to avoid taking part
of that disturbance with me
Maybe the thing most
out of whack about nature
is the human race?
