rabbit rabbit

my mother tamed a rabbit
fur-trimmed scented
in a hat she could hide in
they bunny hopped on the hat’s
dance floor and because
the rabbit led with his chin
my mother insisted
his razor and strop
were restrained in the bathroom
once she found blood on her towel
once she wondered if the rabbit
was cutting away her coats
when he needed forgiveness
the rabbit slept on a white napkin
my mother ate hunter’s oatmeal
so the rabbit knew the boss
