Hannie Rouweler: 'Vosje'


In the wedding photo mother stands
with that fox round her shoulders

her fur coat
and her showpiece

I look in the mirror
see myself in her
the same eyes, the same hair.

In the middle of summer
I am wearing a dead fox

dark beady eyes
stare unchanged at me:

call it love
but the clasp is missing.
