Fox

When darkness comes, so does he.

His blaze of day subdued by night.

Small footed, fine muzzled, almond eyed -

common -

classed as a pest -

and yet


he brings wilderness to my all-too-tame domain.


Wilder-ness -

that which is wilder than me -

it does not take much,

wrapped in blankets, drinking tea -

it does not demand the Serengeti,

the desperate polar bears on their shrinking floes

or yellow-eyed wolves on Mongolian plains -


just him.


Fox.
