jade rabbit

jade rabbit
by Tina Brown Velona

i consider writing about something
i have written about before
but am interrupted by something outside
very wet because of the rain
and it occurs to me i will never
say convincingly “lets go swimming”
because you know i dont like swimming
though we go often but because
i always say “so should we go
swimming” doubtfully
looking at my jade rabbit
his humid posture and placid posture
as he nibbles the orange ground
of a book by john ashbury
rivers and mountains
