"Coyote and His Fleas"

Some say Coyote is the first of all animal people, the first to be named by the creator. Some say he has the power to change the sun and the moon, but with all his power he can't get rid of his fleas. So the best he can do is to find a log on which he scratches his back, while he watches the fleas jump up.
