The Chupacabra

He wandered up
innocently
chasing white wings
away

Delicately finding
sunflower seeds
and millet
Raw exposed skin
startled me

I have never
seen
a chupacabra
before

I laughed at
Miguel
nervous fireside
warning me
about walking
the ranch
unarmed

So
here it is
cold and hungry
stealing seed

I want to
call Miguel
No preocupas
Mi Amigo
No preocupas

But
he was
shot
coming back
Thirsty

I hope he
passed
watched over

as the
South Texas
sun rose
Big
Red

The folksy
beast
posed no
threat

It was
those that
watched him
work
