Coyote Robert Altman Tony Hillerman Poem

A Trimeter Sonnet With A Lone Tetrameter Line Touching On Grand Canyon And Monument Valley In A Superficial Way (Ignited In My Memory By Tony Hillerman’s New Mystery Released Today, 21-Nov-2006, Entitled ‘The Shape Shifter’ Set In The Glorious Southwest Which We Had Visited This Spring While Reading His Previous Novels [While Now Savoring The Anticipated Sounds Of A New Beatles Mix Release Entitled 'Love' And Tom Waits Triple CD Entitled 'Orphans']) Dedicated In Memoriam To Robert Altman 1925-2006 Who Like Coyote Teaches Us “How To Put It Together In Chaos And Therefore Create Chaos In Which To Put It Together” As Elliott Gould Quoted The Director Tonight On All Things Considered And Considering Some Recent Personal Developments Not of Concern To The Exegeses Of All Yet Meaningful To Me

Coyote tends to play
intently with our sense
that fixes all creation
permanent and here,
reminding us our world
is temporarily
our best interpretation
only, only good
as some discounted souvenir
that’s not exactly Grand
nor much a Monument
to Quantum Leaps of Space
and Time Continuums
but something cheap, yet dear.
