Pig at Large

by Lee Scher

There was a pig named Nathan Frack
?who walked along a railroad track
?and met beside a wolf who’d tied?
his things inside a pink pig hide.

He killed him there in the yellow glare
?of the lamppost light that moonless night;
And buried the skin that had been his kin,
?and said a prayer, and flew from there.

February, 1997
