Two Days After the Election

A nature lover, more comfortable
jogging on trails than on roads,
comfortable camping, comfortable
cycling on roads through the woods,
comfortable kayaking down slow
rivers and on open water, he sits
listening to Schubert’s The Trout
and decides he will take his chances
in the woods where the wild life
is predictable in behavior without
the hate he sees in unpredictable
humans and so he laces his running
shoes and heads for the trail to
say hello very, very cautiously to
the Tiger rattler, the razor-sharp
tusked Javelina and the calm, cool
and collected Coyote.
