Rat Whisper

Rat Whisper
by Jack Morgan

Rat arrow sleek
whispers across
another of God's creatures
hating mourning
wants tomorrow
in ratholes
no one smiles
in foxholes
there's no pacifists
in poetry
there's no atheists
in reality

no doors
no sidewalks
no whispers
no owls in years
who knows who
wanted rats to live longer
by murdering owls
rats run the night
with cold woman fingers
groping for God's gifts
we love nets
in the deep

Actually, I think I like it. But it took awhile to encroach upon me.
