Fox

Laura Lush
From:   Carapace. (Palimpsest Press, 2011).


When the fox died,
The whole forest died.
What was it about the fox?
Clever, for sure; wit enough
To hole all of his wrecked body
In dirt. Every now and then, that tail---
Spuriously red, flashing through the trees.
Damn pretty shame
Of it all.
