COYOTE COMES TO GREAT RIVER
by Terry Everett



                  Across the levee
                  the sun falls
                  through a tree,
                  and the
                  moon-mirror
                  radiates over
                  Dark'ning Land,
                  as the Cherokee
                  say, and Nearby
                  and Faraway,
                  Coyote howls
                  down by the
                  Riverside and Sky
                  sings: Bear sings
                  low in the
                  Northwest,
                  Capricorn adds
                  bass in the South,
                  Cassiopeia sings
                  Wolf-song
                  in the East, and
                  Pegasus runs
                  Unbridled across
                  the Sky-Dome
                  turning indigo and
                  humming
                  a harp-tune struck
                  upon dark strings
                  by Jupiter, the
                  Moon, and stars
                  pulsing with radio
                  waves that pour
                  into Coyote's ear,
                  pour out
                  in Coyote's
                  River-Love-Song.
