Coyote

lyrics

I’d rather be a coyote
Katie Lee says
she feels so betrayed
rivers deserve to be free

open mining 
in waterways, historic parks
the lifeblood, the lungs of the Earth
stop short
no other spaceship like her

carved wooden birds adorn her 
swam in potholes and waterfalls
bathed in desert rose soft blush
stands her naked body
carved by sand, by wind, by dust
carved by rain, by rivers, by streams
flood the canyons
drown everything
ignore the rules of balance 
watch destruction of the sanctuaries 
wildflowers to circles to spirals from 50 AD 
gathering pine seeds
canyon glen curving 

flood the canyons
drown everything
ignore the rules of balance on Earth
watch destruction of the sanctuaries
