Eye of the Rabbit

    Before a brain been forth. Before too tender
the narrow is. Had rustled about this canyon
    dwelt atop powerful haunches. Into the purer
eye the rabbit nestles in transient socket. Had
    etched upon fragile grass is welded across a
spirit world seeming. And revolves the seeing
    eye in whose sluice a moist coddled. Brought
such wonders across barriers the shepherded
    batter. Had shaven some this humble morning.
Filled the belly on young alfalfa ties the farmer
    let spread and shuffled to the brush future is.
Keyed such memory portals for the garroted
    decay. Everything else turned prescient in the
eye ajar. Bells sung to the meadow enable seem.
