Poetry. Inheriting its title from the British hunting term "Tally Ho," AFTER THE FOX is a book propelled and inspired by the notion of perpetual chase. As collaborative authors, Sarah Suzor and Travis Cebula adopt the personas of Morning and Nocturnal. These two voices engage in and with every aspect that unites the binaries, as well as those that distinguish them as separate entities. AFTER THE FOX begins in Manhattan where Morning pries at Nocturnal questioning, "Have you / forgotten me?" What ensues is an epistolary conversation between the two characters that involves their history and their experiences in the city. Nocturnal writes: "We grasped hands. We ran / so fast no one could have / told us apart or told us from / the moon." To which Morning replies: "Dawn belongs to me. / Remember? That's the deal we made."
