well armed

in the mornings

i greet my day

every day

with prayer and contemplation.

and i am used to having an armed guard in attendance.

The Nahuati called you Turtle Rabbit,


but their numbers have diminished of late.

i thought it was simply due to the weather –

but sadly have discovered it was due to others who were also well armed.

how is it that we label some ‘vermin’ and others pets?

when i see You in all Your compliments.
