The Fox’s Den, deserted.

Posted by Ian McAdam on February 5, 2009

I wrote this with my redbubble friend, michaelalchemy.  My first collaboration in years!


The fox’s den, deserted
the scent is followed
by a widow, half dead
standing on her head
the landlord, sad, indebted
speech became whetted
by the crisis now revealed:
let us all be healed
they chant through the fog
they disavow the demagogue—
the evictor, from Rome
off the throne will lose its home
washing down the Tigris
wedged between Isis and Osiris
to the widow, sins purged
renewal encouraged
fox-snout to human nose
from the thorn grows a rose
full circle! seagull above
scavenger and journeyed dove
aluminium sign: For sale.
