Some Time after Midnight, a Fox Slinks Right Past the Big Front Windows

Fox Central Victoria_26 APR 2019

It sends a cold shiver down through moonlight’s every room.
It is the shadow of a doubt.
Here, hunger has its phantom in the heat of a Summer night.
Dogs curl their upper lips in dream
at the scent.
Stars bristle visibly.
Meanwhile, crickets go on calling out their names over and over
as if nothing ever happens.
