the red fox

my soul like the red fox runs
it flashes and is gone

disappearing down
a midnight trail
of milky darkness

stop! don't shine the light
wait in silent stillness

watch the trees for movement
use your body to sense
approaching footfall and leveling gaze

there in the clearing
the red fox waits

now go!
and don't tell anyone what you saw
