Coyote Crossing

a coyote crossed my path yesterday

trickster, sauntered across the road

and up the railroad tracks embankment

looking back and then disappearing

down over the other side to the east


i was out biking, taking advantage of

forties for temperatures and sunny

skies, even though a stiff wind blew

from the southwest that put a chill

in the air and slowed me down some


it was my first “wild” coyote sighting,

i think, bringing a smile to my face like

the first time i heard them in the night

camped at devil’s tower after a

tremendous summer storm passed
