Rabbit on a rainy morning

young rabbit 
chewing leaves 
under a wet weeping willow 
7:04 am june 2, 2011 
i get into my dry car 
and go to work

(Elisabeth Bee

Elisabeth’s matter-of-fact narrative — speared through as it is by a precise dateline — achieves so much, and with such delicacy, economy, and compassion; I dare not examine it too closely.
