Poetry 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
 
he’s gone.
