By John Cannon

Stark still
we stare at each other,
neither saw the other approach,

a weathered old man
and a striking young fox.

Warmth blooms in my heart
an instant chill in his.

Can my good intentions
prolong this precious moment?

No chance.

With riveting intensity
he scans,

With lightning speed

hes gone.
