Coyote, the Trickster

The Trickster

I hear Coyote outside, yelping, yipping,
 insistently calling out to me
as I fall asleep.

Coyote is the trickster, not only in Native American lore
but enduring archetype in many cultures worldwide. 
Coyote is a troublemaker,  breaking the straight-jacket rules 
of gods, nature, and establishment society – 
sometimes for good and sometimes not.

I wonder what it is
 Coyote wants of me?
