Coyote

Detail from a mural, Prescott Public Library, Prescott, Arizona
 


Coyote couldn’t care less
About the crimson blooms,
Because he’s stalking field mice
Cowering in their rooms.
 
If he should see a flower,
Coyote passes by;
His single-minded passion
Is making mince-mice pie!

  9. Mind you I have seen wild animals sniffing blooming flowers so I do credit them with some appreciation of beauty.
