Even the holly surges in June.
The day’s business requires its brutal thrust.
The ocean continues to roar and everyone
is tipped forward from one dawn to another.
What chance that anyone will remember
the solitary individual who departs unnoticed?
Driving home from the hospital we saw
a baby rabbit nibbling by the side of the road,
unaware of the danger which even its parents
could not convey. It’s not always best
to learn from experience — the “hard way” —
especially when there is nothing to be learned.
