"The theater is an empty box, and it is our task to fill it with fury and ecstasy, and with revolution."

The flea that crawls from the rabbit’s fur–
As Sophie said–
It’s lonely there.
Clinging to the bristle
Of a bunny’s back
Swaying; uneven
And terrifying
And fascinating.
I lose my grip
And plummet
Past the endless field of pasty-white corn
Hurtling violently, and without a sound
Then past, and past the hat, of course
And down, of course
And nowhere at all.
