Poem Of The Month: December 2014 - 'Fox Cycle' by Bethany W. Pope

'Fox Cycle' by Bethany W. Pope
Gerard Beirne's insight:

Fox Cycle is a traditional sonnet crown; adorned with a
continuous double-acrostic that runs down the left and
right margins of each sonnet and which, taken together,
form another poem. It details the life of a vixen as she
(being trickster) slips between the world of the living and
the world of the dead.
