learning to share

In the woods
I came across a
coyote feeding
ground strewn
with bones.
They had found
a deer carcass and,
I can only assume,
shared it – all
feasting together.

But the bones
they left for me.

Sharing is much
harder for those
on two legs.

A woman to whom
every desire is
a mere whim,
is best left behind.

A woman who
walks through the
world uncaring
is best kept at arms
length, as are most
things which are
impossible to
understand.

When a connection
isn’t possible
and the superiority
that she feels
is made clear,
it is best to
walk away.

We cannot be
weighed down
by such things.

Everyone needs
a good humbling
now and then

it cleanses the
soul’s palette.
