AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Dreams.


Just before dark

watched coyote take a crap
on rock outcropping,
flexing hips (no time off)
swiveled owl-like to see
in all six directions:
sky above
earth below,
points of compass
in two half-circles.
There.
And there is no distance.
He knows the dreamer
that dreams his dreams.
