Truman Coyote

from the album

Words are what I write
all day and night
I type my words.

Words belong in
poems, books, and songs.
I long for words.

Colonel Purple Turtle
keeps a purple turtle journal.

I take words
and set them free
for everyone to read.

Verbs with tenses
forming sentences,
all made from words.

Austen, Shakespeare, Dr. Seuss
used words
droll and obtuse .

Novel publications painting novel situations.

Words like birds
they flock together
Oh, I love my words.
Oh, I love my words.
Oh, I love my words.

I write my books and sign them Truman Coyote
that’s how the readers know it’s me.
