“COYOTE” by Leah Cappelli

Our treasured landscape has been paved

With the most glorious of colors,

Shades we could never comprehend

Until present day

 

But technology has cut into spirituality,

Carefully crafting these compositions,

The soundtrack to this earthquake of ennui

Plaguing the lonely and

Leaving many to wear

Masks of sanity

 

Days filled with

Empty circular reasoning

Signifying nothing substantial,

Pulling loose threads instead of

Properly mending the material,

Discarding empty milk cartons

Instead of making attempts to

Find the missing child on the side

 

Those with rational abilities

Sometimes lose their luster in

The face of adversity,

Using sharp tongues

To dig deeper holes of

Desperation

 

Through failed coping tactics,

They lose traction,

They let the looney toons win

 

The coyote is not supposed to

Catch the roadrunner, so why

Does it keep happening?
