for Miz Quickly’s Day 11

Silver in the Shadows

At heart, I am a coyote, and
My view is from the shadows.
I speak softly. I am
Silver. Clear. Aging.
Memories shimmer.

The moon watches me
With its acne-scared face.
The ground is still, but there’s
Still speed in my legs.
At heart, I am always a coyote.

Write a poem in which you’re not quite yourself.
