Lyrics by Leslie I. Benson 2009

What does it mean
when I see a lone coyote
in the middle of the highway?
Are you just another trickster, another trickster?

What does it mean
when a raven falls before me,
descending like angels falling
overhead, overhead?

Are you a good omen?
Are you in my dreams?
Am I more lucid there
than I am here?

Are you here to take me
back to where I’m from?
Are you my good,
my good medicine?

What does it mean
when I drive by a marquee
on a chapel door that tells me: 
“This is it. This is it?”

What does it mean
when you complete every sentence,
are you in my head again,
speaking out from within?

Are you a good omen?
Are you in my dreams?
Am I more lucid there
than I am here?

Are you here to take me
back to where I’m from?
Are you my good,
my good medicine?
