hopper, jumper, thumper. whatever, we just called him hal.

i string your toes together on elastic
like penne on a string brought
home by a child.

but these have been severed post-mortem
due to the crudeness of my new
moral values eroded by a slow
loss of respect for anything
of value.

your finger’s i’ll leave in the bowl
on the counter and wish i wasn’t so
disgusted by the cruelty (although
it’s not like you felt it).

and your feet i’ll make in to keychains
and sell them in a market. i’ll call
them good luck charms. and we’ll
miss, or so we’ll say. but we might
actually find we rather enjoy the excess
of carrots and lettuce all of a sudden
available to us for meals and juicing
since you’ve been gone.
