I think the coyote was eating something small.  As I watched him, a chipmunk chirped incessantly. Wild kingdom continues to live in our backyard.  I would prefer everyone ate lunch somewhere else.

Wild kingdom continues to live
In the backyard.
Right of the crab apple,
Behind the garage
A coyote stands
Plain as day
Right as rain
Bold as you please.
Thankfully our cat
Lives indoors.
The coyote and I
Stare each other down
Except neither of us
Stands down.
Points made,
We both leave
At exactly the same moment.
He might have walked through
Any of three open gates.
Instead he slips through a hole
Under the fence.
