Fox Dreams

she springs out like lightning
from her dark den.
her wet black nose
sniffs the air for mischief.
her tall pointy ears
hears a pack of hounds.
she goes into survival mode.
she wanders around the forest
setting her stench to the west
on the other side of the creek
this red fox stares in disbelief.
the huntsmen fixes his wounded dog
but once he sees this escape artist
this fox eyes begin to water.
all she ever wanted was to be
the Huntsmen's one and only pal
as he stabs this fox in the back for fur.
