Rabbit Run


Earthenware rabbit
observes
from a highboy bureau
joy and sorrow
pleas for easy death
the cultish weight of adulthood
pressing
dreams of fields of clover
wishes it could scamper
away from here

  6. Ya know I am in constant awe of your words choices. Here I was enamored with highboy bureau and cultish weight of adulthood. This poem is too powerful for how short it is...sort of like a rabbit :)

  7. A lot of adults would rather still be in their childhood. Finally many do attain a second childhood.

  8. The woe of someone, something that can only observe and not run with freedom.

  12. I'm still imagining how it must be for an earthenware rabbit full of longing to scamper in fields of clover.
