Along a dark lonely highway

a coyote glides on by

I see the backdrop, the Vegas Strip 

against the starry sky

The contrast hits me hard

We are the encroachers

Building our cities in her back yard

As I exit the highway I long to turn around

To linger in the beauty of the desert night I found

In the morning I go back to see what I can see

and there she is, this graceful coyote

standing, looking at me

She vanishes for a moment

Then emerges from her den

Three young pups behind her

I think I've made a friend

She fears not and niether do I 

As we live out this day beneath the desert sky

I long to touch her

but I know its best to let her be

Its enough to know she and her pups are alive and wild and free
