The anonymous fox

The anonymous fox

A Poem by SleeplessVolcano

I saw a red fox on the road
it looked at me with answers in its eyes
I felt its gaze seep through my soul
it pleaded for mercy, but I had none
it asked where I was going, but I did not know
I could only see, the blood on the highway
Satellite spatters, coloring the snow
Three feet deep, was all I could do
its fur still warm, but not melting the grave
A cold voice mumbled, do foxes go to heaven?
I don't know, I said to the back seat
but I hope that this one would.
