Prayer for Prisoners

at Christmas

Sirens are for those

who need saving.  Coyotes’

songs are starved and sad.

Word of the Day for Monday, December 24, 2012

glissade \gli-SAHD\, verb:

1. To perform a glissade, a sliding or gliding step.

noun:
1. A skillful glide over snow or ice in descending a mountain, as on skis or a toboggan.
2. Dance. A sliding or gliding step.

And then I hear it, a high tenuous glissade of sound that I might almost have mistaken for a siren if I didn’t know better, and I realize that this is what I’ve been waiting for all along: the coyote chorus.
— Tom Coraghessan Boyle, The Tortilla Curtain
