Over railroad ties and under 2x4s, amongst the rocks and autumn leaves, there lies a rabbit’s corpse. And, around the corner amongst the house’s wiring, there lies a stray with the catch of the day, a mouse whose sun is setting. It’s cold. It’s a cold hard world. It’s murder amidst the crows that haunt the trees in the dark over dirty rows of ice and snow, where in the morning cars will park. And, to the man whose needle drugs we found, our eyes later stay glued. I feel a mix of pity, guilt, and fear each time he does intrude. And, it’s cold. It’s a cold hard world. Is this any place for my baby girl?
