Southern Legitimacy Statement Southern Legitimacy Statement : I went to college in Delaware (not the south) but anyone south of Glasboro, NY, thought they were–and the accents were thick. In my travels, my drives south, I realized that the south was calm and quiet—the way it should be. For that, I am grateful.
Living with Rabbits
A woman once decided to visit
thought it safe, I live with rabbits
not preferring women.
Certainly not men, either.
to rabbits in
quarantine, or no one
else in the world.
Today I sing them songs
about what they are doing
with their lives, as they sleep
and munch hay into mulch,
And Rabbits boast long back legs
quite strong. they leap forward
great distances with a single push
they move quick– short bursts,
good for leaping into the air or
forward over the ground,
when out of their cages,
sometimes…I do too.
