What The Eye Don’t See
Rats - in the bathroom in the tack room in the back room
in the shower, in her bed unstuffing her pillow unpicking stitches in his quilt
down in the kitchen in the saucepans in the drawers
sniffing out a bag of flour licking out the dripping bowl catching
their whiskered features in her granny's silver spoons. However, in the smaller picture,
not one spot of rat's blood on the windows on his pitchfork
in her hair or on his specs. Not one flattened rodent
underfoot. Not one small expiring body on the threshold. Ah!
but what those rats don't know is that this solemn couple have recently bought shares in Warfarin.
