Dreams 2022

Umbra Bunny
(5/28/2022)


to be
walking along
a bright
sidewalk

during

enduring

this hot
cloudless
late May
afternoon

and to notice
a rabbit

a lazy
lagomorph

resting comfortably
in the cool
tree-shaded
grass

makes me
wonder

what
my suffering

what anyone’s
suffering

is all about

where
are we going?

what
are we doing?

what
is there
really
to be done?

I have
no answers

as I sweat
uncomfortably
in the sun
