Follow coyote, on a bright winter day
into the canyon
below the cliff walls
across the tripping creek
past the trout pool
around the long-eared owl thickets
below the sharp shinned hawk that hunts its prey.
Follow coyote over the ice that hides his passage
down into the draw
up onto the flats
to the Owyhee mountains
to the crossroads and the parting of ways.
Follow Coyote, ghost in the snow
