where do rats go when they die
and where does that thing go –
that thing deep inside them?
not the green, wobbly bit
but the thing behind their eyes?
that part of them that knows that
they are separate from the shadows
outside of the candle light?


is there a Big Rat underground
ruling endless tunnels of night?
is there a Big Rat underground
with a burrow where all rats go?

after the ears have grown pale
and the pink nose twitch no more
is there a Big Rat underground
with a burrow where all rats go?
