Executive Privilege

Executive Privilege

Human brain Fido

Inside his chain-link fence

Joins full-moon sky concert

With Rufus, and Poochie

Down the block

On their chains,

Cock their ears

And wonder, wonder

Why the faint coyote calls,

Why a whiff of rotten elk-meat

In the garbage

Drives them wild.

From Poems of the New Old West
