The Fox

ISSUE:  Winter 2006

Because the hunted learn a furtive grace
that hunters never know: pursued, escape
becomes an art of need, as serfs took tripe
discarded from the master’s table-place

and founded haute cuisine. And so, the hounded
fox, hidden two dogs deep in earth, may perk
and snarl, may offer a triumphant bark.
The thwarted dogs yelp away, confounded.
