Coyote

Ring of oleander,
the arroyo: water filmed,
brown and white ducks
shower in desert noon.

Chihuahua monsoon
has passed.

Silent as solstice,
the spirit,
hand-length ears,
coat woven pyrite

He has seen
Franciscan theocracy,
burning kachina,
genocide.

He laughed
during creation
told the first lie.
