The Fox, The Wolf, The Coyote

CANIDS The Fox with cat-like slit eyes lurking near the hen house. . . . meow-less creature Chihuahua-like ears catch a sound in the bushes. . . . hens can rest easy a small rat scurries with that vixen in pursuit . . . it’s fast-food tonight Coyotes song of the desert - long howls declare “I am here”. . . . mice and rabbits hide barking dogs in threes unlucky mice collected. . . . live practice for cubs yippy yippy yip heard among those happy cubs. . . celebration time The Pack the pack starts its hunt mountains rise up before them. . . thirty miles to go in dark night - dog fight one alone - tail stands erect. . . . yellow eyes back off wolf faces grinning twenty pounds of meat for each. . . . like one hundred burgers For PD's Inner Animal Contest: for fox, coyote, wolf haiku
