Highway Coyote

On the side of gorge highway
Animal control was there already
To pick up the body

A rolling shiver of
grey brown menace
Or a loving scout dad
on other days

A thirteen wheel truck
probably got him
On his night lope home

One more dash across
the night highway
He’d done it a hundred times
