Animal Control Answers a Jackalope Emergency

1 November 2012

A woman called,
said creatures had
overtaken her garden.

Foul things, she called them.
Cursed things.

She may have been right
about the curse.

Sometimes
el chupacabra is a dehydrated coyote carcas.

Sometimes
a unicorn is a rhinocerous.

The tragedy, of course,
is how illness spreads –
rabbit to rabbit,
garden to garden.

There is no otherworld here,
only cancer, the tumors
unexciseable, leaving only shadows
in the dark.
