Someone got the cream,
(not me.)
Someone stared with yellow eyes
whispering AI.
Nothing is real.
Are shadows real?
Or only the thing that casts them?
        This morning
the rat we found was real enough
        with its vertebra
exposed like a worm recoiling.
        A buzzard may have dropped it,
but we suspect a cat.
