Ann Menebroker

Crow Meets Coyote

They both become cautious.
The desert is big enough for both
of them, but sometimes it’s lack
of space they need, a reason
to get closer. The sky is so damn
wide, there is no intimacy left.
But if the sun is as bright
as the sky is endless, they will
have their chance at sunset
when the night is as long
as shelter, as horny as the owl.
