Michael Adams – Canis Latrans

Hey Warriorpoets,

This was sent to me by Eric Shaffer, another warrior poet. He told me Michael died in September and he’s been reading this poem daily to keep his memory green.

For the Wild, Dennis

from Broken Hand (1991)

Along the road where it winds
by the river two crows rose
from the remains of a porcupine
That night you catch coyote
framed in the headlights
as he drags the body away

Stop
walk to the edge
pavement gives way
willow cottonwood
& a thrill

Not of fear or pleasure rises
through your feet, your spine
neck hairs stand on end

Screen of brush & river behind
you stare & staring back
two wild yellow eyes

-Michael Adams
