Three rabbit thoughts // Juliet Cook


It's hard for me to visualize a large shark shivering. So it must be

baby sharks with no parents, teaching themselves to swim then

repeatedly shivering down. Half of them will drown and anyway

nobody really likes the way things come out of their head.

The way they open their little mouths and show their teeth.

I can relate even though I can't swim because nobody likes rabbit teeth

either.

I think I used to have a mother, but now I'm by myself.

I think my mom's teeth got knocked out when she was hit by a car.

To make myself feel better I sometimes pretend that all the wildflowers are

mine

and none of them mind getting stuck in my teeth.
