A question of foxes

At dawn the foxes
       chatting away
at the end
       of the garden

to me it’s a cacophonous
       high-pitched screech
to them I’m sure
       it’s music to their ears

I wonder about
       their vocal chords
how many words
       they are able

to enunciate and
        whether they’re able
to formulate questions
       or express their feelings
