DUSTY DREAMS

Dust Bunny
Landed on my thigh
Looked up and waited
For me to notice

It didn't have eyes
So it didn't see
My fingers coming
Pinch pinch, flick out of existence

Oh, look at the bunny go
Flung over, about
His little mouthless face
I could imagine it opened

"Did I hurt you?"
I peer past my foot
Where the bunny dust lies still
Twitches, as if it broke some dusty bones

His momma won't be too happy with him
Dust Bunny didn't get to
To late to make a musty brood
Not a mote to pass along his family name
