Gary Snyder – Three Deer One Coyote Running In The Snow

Posted on Updated on

                  First three deer bounding
and then coyote streaks right after
tail         flat out

I stand dumb a while          two seconds
blankly black-and-white of trees and snow

Coyote’s back!
good coat, fluffy tail,
sees me:              quickly gone.

Later:
I walk through where they ran

to study how that news all got put down.
