Cameo

From the poetry collection published in 2015, Look Winter in the Face.

Cameo

The light snow the gray light
early
before the sun
The red fox appears to stage left
crosses at a businesslike pace
glancing side to side
stylish and full of verve
disappears stage right
His part in this production
Done.

  1. Winter has been peculiar this year I think. Chilly, grey and wet isn’t my kind of winter. We have a family of foxes in our street. I love seeing them but I can’t say I enjoy their late night screeching.

  2. They live in a den way off back in the trees (we are near a creek and it’s kind of a no man’s land). I also saw a mother fox and two babies a couple of springs ago at the park, and I was able to get a good look, or rather, they all just stood and looked at me!
