We return to Los Angeles today to spend a long weekend with my son and his family, arriving from London for a U.S. holiday...


Topping the gas tank
at the service station
and rejoining the freeway
traffic at seventy-five
miles per hour, Coyote
speculates how long
it would take Tortoise
to cover the sixty miles
from here to Los Angeles
on four feet, striding
along at full tortoise
speed and stopping
once in a while to nibble
on a blade or two of grass
to restore his energy.
