You are all legs—towering
above my little Fox
like a giant, disgusted
or a furry melon with a bony crown
reaching for a sky that
I can’t see for your fury
may my prayers rise above
your steaming nostrils
may we not go down this path of
broken bodies and screaming calves
may we remember instead the precious
mouths we both have to feed
and move on
