Old Coon Haikoon

trumpets blare
from the halo
trumpets blare
from the town

but around the pond
raccoon footprints
and the shells and leftover pieces
of the crawdads it has eaten there

raccoon washing hands in pond
under cottonwood tree

full moon
a slight stink
of discarded crawdad parts
comes drifting
