A Perfectly Balanced Dinner

I have let the rabbits out.
The mother seeks justice
and justice shall be served
on an earthen plate
garnished with clover
and beets

I have let the rabbits out.
The mother has heard a rabbit’s
scream.
One who falls down a rabbit-hole
never makes it back.
The rabbits will dine on meats tonight.

I watch the phosphorescent frenzied flights. This is their brightest star for the night. A nomadic community droning to feed the hunger. I won’t turn off their star tonight. I slip to another galaxy and turn on more stars inside.

We all need a star
burning bright into the night
A place we call home.
