Title: Shot Rabbit

Limp she lies against the ploughed soil

Still life with pain and pellet.

Flicked and dimpled silent fur

Spread and wind raped.

A dreamer's warmth leaks down, incontinent.

A dropping exudes and steams gently.

Birth and burrow

Flint and furrow

Impaled on the moment

She ends.

Becomes property.

A hand reaches,


A tread scuffs on.

Grasses shadow box the wind,

Rooks in V formation call

A longing for the high empty trees.
