Fox Magic By Sun Hesper Jansen

el

Foxes, legends tell us, reveal themselves to

the foolish and fey – malicious tricksters,
bent on magical hijinks, cruel seducers,
cunning incarnate.

If a fox could speak, it would laugh and ask:

What beats man for blithe malice and cruelty?
What worse deceit than weaving myths to
demonize wildness

Punishment for a fool is to see in the suburbs
 this flash of russet fur, these eyes of amber,
 and not feel – more than magic – a mending.
Wildness recovered
