I made this linocut in response to a call from Geri Vistein, Carnivore Conservation Biologist, to participate in the Coyote for All Seasons exhibit at L.A. Arts, Mid-April to Mid-June, 2023. The exhibit will help to inform Mainers about the vital role coyotes play in the ecosystems of Maine year-round.

A copy of the poem will come with the print.
They hug the margins of fields,
slip into creases between trees,
glide across gravel roads at dawn or dusk,
bellies close to the ground, tails
trailing. We hardly know they are here, think
all of this is ours—the property, the shorefront,
the view—until moonless nights
when a choir of coyotes sings to the stars
and one paces the length of our driveway
leaving tracks in the snow and scat
where the dog and I are sure to find it.
