Balance and Schadenfreude

A poetic take on predator-prey cycles.

"The Hinge of Spring"

The jackrabbit is a mild herbivore
eating the color off everything
rampant-height or lower.

Rabbits are one of the things
coyotes are for. One quick scream,
a few quick thumps,
and a whole little area
shoots up blue and orange clumps.
