Not a Dream, But LifeTo K. R. Copeland's next piece

Fear of the Rabbit

with clamorous claws that scissor-slit
one's senses. Fleshy confetti on the floor
another rabbit at the door, forty drums
a rumbling roar, assorted far-flung fences.

Dense is the killer that spills bad blood,
and suds the Rorschach spatter. I crack
and I cringe as the bunny begins
its chewing and interment chatter.
