The Coywolves

The Coywolves

Shape-shifters —

wild wolf, urban
crackie and well
coyote have only
recently merged
as a species

a hybrid that will
turn colour,
depending on
land, sea, or
sky change;

they have no reservation,
boundary, and breed
prodigiously among us

endlessly filling their
own predatory veins
with blood and
bone entrails.

I thought about
what had come
out of their ravenous
faces when they
expressed on tv
or came to
our places
asking us
to let them in

but I did not
expect to see
such a muted lot

for they lack
any inhibition
to suppress
their lust

with their
of everyone
and anyone
who has
than they
