Please love Jaques.
Confide in the rabbit.
Cry on this animal.
For, who will listen better?
Whose ears are better than a rabbit's?

In a moment of need, would
some bear, some mighty bear, any mighty bear,
any large, carnivorous man-killer
care about your inner feelings?
Does a bear, a rugged, brutal bear,
show compassion as he tears
raw flesh from his prey?
Is a bear, any bear,
any terrible bear, ever there, for you
when you truly need an animals advice?

A black bear,
somewhere,
grips and tears,
a fish's body apart with white fangs.
And, over there,
another bear,
another black bear,
murders three vacationing campers.
A mother, husband, and child are dead.
They'll never return to their home,
their family, their friends, their neighbors,
their yard, their garden,

where,

gentle rabbits nibble sparingly at a few leaves.
Gentle white rabbits,
eyes red with love ready to give
to anyone who'll hold, and caress--
Big ears to listen
to anyone who'll tell--
Twitching noses, to amuse,
when anyone is down.
Rear paws, just powerful enough
to turn any mood into happiness.
A sense of wisdom, peace, comfort, rebirth,
that is only truly found in a rabbit.

[circa 1988]
