Broken

I am falling out of my heart today

great clots of blood congealing around my teeth

                                               and mouth,

                                                                       Like a bitch-rabbit,

starving underground in some small

dark hole,

                                           quietly consuming her own young.

  1. Wow, that’s some powerful imagery… 😮

    I’ve read that does–female rabbits–can actually reabsorb a pregnancy, when there’s not enough food. Which is somehow less creepy than eating them once they’re born. But still creepy.

    1. yeah, they can do both! They can also voluntarily abort their young at any stage. They are thoroughly un-maternal creatures, it’s a little bit disturbing but we have kept rabbits all my life, so I’ve always found them to be incredible mournful animals.
