The Fox


Inspired by “The Shark” by Edwin John Pratt

Her body was narrow
Slim with starvation
Dry with dehydration
Constricted with suffocation
Crystal blue, now tinted grey were her eyes
She stalks, hidden from site
Narrowing with a focused gaze
Her eyes track the frolicking hare
Quick feet,
Sharp teeth,
Witty decisions,
Her eyes darken ever more
Coat of white, heart of blue,
For there is not a sanctuary
