“One Should Not Talk to a Skilled Hunter
About What Is Forbidden by the Buddha”
A gray fox, nine pounds three ounces.
39 5/8″ long with tail.
Peeling back skin (Kai
reminded us to chant the Shingyo first)
cold pelt. crinkle; and musky smell
mixed with dead-body odor starting.
Stomach content: a whole ground squirrel well chewed
plus one lizard foot
and somewhere from inside the ground squirrel
a bit of aluminum foil.
and the secret hidden deep in that.
