Coyote Mercury

words, birds and whatever else by James Brush


the auto shop
a single ice crystal
melts on my jacket


  1. I had forgotten we first met over stones. I love this. Have had it happen, as have many, I am sure, although not at the auto shop, me. How’s that for syntax?
    I’m sitting staring at the lines. I have become fascinated with what makes one three line observation work and another not. Yours works. So. Huh. Thank you. I have made diligent mental notes.
    Have a good year James.


    • Thanks, Margo. Stone season is a good time for reconnecting, right? Nice to hear from you, and thank you. Ice outside of a drink is rare around here so it tends to stand out :)
