dancing paws

quarter past fog on Fall River, where
morning breaks over the meadow -
and there, just there! is the
healthiest coyote in the county,
splendid in fur and mouse-fed
fat. and there, where the road
turns in both directions at the
stop sign, a hopeful sign, in
highway yellow and black,
singing the praises of "dancing
paws mobile grooming service."
now we know where he goes.
