object so perceived

 

Humans and beasts are different species, but foxes are between humans and beasts. The dead and the living walk different roads, but foxes are between the dead and the living.

… one could say to meet a fox is strange; one could also say it is ordinary.

    — Ji Yun, 1789, in Notebook from the Thatched Cottage of Close Scrutiny

 

 

 

you are here old
sorcerer where this pile
of leaves becomes soil
 

I see your fox teeth
 

what magic do you
bring the less I say
the better
 

I see your seven tails
 

I will find you another
moon your golden spine
cracked with lightning
 

I see rain falling from the clear sky
