cry for love

we went out in the star-chilled


six bare feet

joined twelve furry paws

on the wooden deck conceived

and born

four years earlier for this very moment;

we waited

in quiet anticipation

and were not disappointed


a shriek colder than

the night


rendered strong daddy arms

warm mommy comfort



shrieking in reply

the child,

of pure and innocent mind

had no means of conjuring up

horrific thoughts,

the kind running through our minds


so curiosity nudged her back

onto the porch

to hear the screaming

in the woods


the cry for love of a red fox
