in the mornings
i greet my 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.
