How lucky am I? Free poetry workshop by Tony Hoagland in Santa Fe.   Leave a comment


I wrote this for assignment to imitate the form of a poem called, “Snow” by James Longenbach.

Howl
Coyote that howls the plains
howl into my skin
invade the furrows of winter wheat
the snow-covered beaver dams
the jack pine branches

Howl up my sleeves
as I hang Levi’s on a wire clothesline
this cold Valentine’s Day
all the while longing for a chocolate
heart melting in my mouth
on a hot beach in Miami

Howl into expanses of prairie
find me like a speck of rabbit on the horizon
find me kneeling in a buffalo wallow
find me in this stretch of endless

Coyote that howls the plains
howl into my echoes
howl until I am awake
