"though it isn't they coyote, but the city that doesn't belong."
Also did you intend for the internal rhyme in the line "marks the moon's frontier close to here"? If you didn't "border" or "borders" would work fine and eliminate the internal rhyme.
"changed / deranged" seems kind of forced. I was going to suggest using the slant rhyme "tame" such as "nature won't call back to one so tame" but you've already used tame, so it's not the best suggestion.
Very good indeed. It has a nice feel to it, sad and expressive. The rhyming took alot out of it for me though. I think you could have said alot more if you did'nt do it but in the end its still an excellent write. I like the opening alot "With his paws on the pavement he is so docile and lame." It sets the mood nicely. Another thing, I two hate not being commented on and I find it hard to imagine that a simple yet intellectual poem such as this would not be commented on, commenting is'nt exactly rocket science...
It is a good way to sum up the conflicts of urbanism versus nature, and I htink you expressed it all quite accurately.
I particularly liked
There's a wild side to every town, however nature here is tame.
The buzz of a metropolis can feel so wrong, though its not the coyote, but the city that doesn't belong.
The only thing that bugged me was the rhyming. I've read a few things of yours and I think they all rhymed. Its hard to express why I don't like the rhyming here. Maybe I am just not into the forced wording of it. I kind of appears like a whimsical device when all the syllables are irregular, almost something childish, which doesn't suit the poem's theme at all.
