Ekphrastic 25/The Fox Woman

[currently on-submission]

***

This is it.  My last ekphrastic.  Only probably not.  But it’s the last one I’ll probably ever write on a schedule (not that I adhered to that schedule very well.  My timeline existed conceptually, but not actually).  Anyway, this particular poem was written for the book The Fox Woman by Kij Johnson, who wrote my favorite novel of last year, Fudoki (which I also wrote an ekphrastic for).
