the thing about rabbits in the wild





the thing about rabbits in the wild –
we have them over here.
they come and graze in the cool of the afternoon shade,
in the yard.

when you startle them
they run, but not far,
then, they stop, glance back
as if to say 'i'm scared –

you gave me a start.
i'm curious, although i now hide, i'd rather be there
in the shade –
in your back yard'.
