Cry of the Coyote

Fiona Howell

A long high-pitched note

tears through the night

and the patches of freezing rain.

Through the parting clouds

the full moon lights

the way upon the snow

for the pack as it runs through

the woods between the trees.

The band has killed and

must howl for the sacrifice.

Their eerie cry is the only

chorus of the night.
