FOX

1.
A granny fox trots into a yard
where a granny rabbit lives. The fox
eats the granny rabbit,
her bones visible
to an aghast Mexican sunflower.
Nature tells few stories
with happy endings.
We hear these stories
and avoid mirrors.
2.
A woman enters an office
and marries her computer,
perfectly legal and common.
That’s love for you,
a series of clicks.
She strokes the screen
and a fox leaps out,
gobbles her up.
Many express sadness.
Her funeral pops
like a Sweet Tart.
