The Rabbit

Quiet, soft, unassuming

 Barely a noticeable twitch

She sits frozen as you approach

Empty eyes of endless inky night

Not even she is knows when she will bolt

Give her long enough

 She will harbor sickness

Take a bite out of your best laid plans

Her space, the stuff of legends and fairy tales

Buried unseen under your feet

Waiting to break an ankle

Or turn your world on its head

–April Resnick
