A coyote wandered down the road
over which I sat at a window above,
It entered the property
on which I live, and instead
of feeling any sort of alarm,
for this is quite an unusual sight
— the invisible making itself visible —
along this eastern stretch of north shore,
I felt thrilled.
It is not every day
that one gets to see
those who once roamed
wild and free upon lands
cut up, packaged into parcels,
branded real estate and cultivated
to eliminate anything remotely deemed
I felt its tension,
the heaviness of its
predatory bearing in so
I felt its loneliness,
no pack in sight.
I felt its confusion,
its displacement, so like
I felt its
the space it roamed,
not where I could see it
— out there — but deep
And I remembered
that I, too, have a wilderness
within me. One that spreads across
continents and time zones and property lines
of peoples and powers and nations.
And I remembered
to breathe into this vast place
unlimited by my narrow human scope,
unlimited by mankind’s endless
conquering and settling and
occupying and claiming.
And I saw that like
this coyote, I am free
even amidst all that isn’t.
That I am sovereign
in my flesh pelt
That I am
the sum of all parts,
part of all that is
