Today is Fox

Today is fox
as if sleeping
next to the highway.
No visible sign
of the obvious
trauma that wrote
this story. He lies
on his side
back towards us
as if all danger has passed.
What more damage
can we inflict
on the little sack
of bones and fur
that used to be quick
as a, well, you know.
Today is fox
and tomorrow
may offer us
a glimpse
into yet another
universe it seems
we can neither protect
nor be part of.

Ailment

Transported by love.
Riding public transportation.
Wearing love's raiments.
Wrapped in affection.
Call it what you will.
What you want to be
is attracted, attractive
to those around you
like a person seen
waiting at a train station
wrapped in secret wings
about to take flight.
