coyote dream

In my dreams I walk out into the night

away from the house and

into the forest

the animals make sounds

like warning

but I ignore them

somehow I came to these woods looking for you

you’re not here

only here come the coyotes

suddenly surrounded by a pack of three

with their mischief and their teeth

so I let them tear me to pieces without a fight

after all, I later reason upon waking,

in the dream the coyotes are also me
