I really like “the gourd-rattle din of kaydids” and your description of how “the thinnest circle of [the] hand” is illuminated. Last May I did a general search of sorts on foxfire with the idea of writing a prose poem. It’s more of a found poem at this point. Then there’s Robert Thomas’ poem “Foxfire.” Do you know it? The Japanese lore of the kitsune is also interesting to me. A tree full of birds. yes.
