Inside their cages
shit on the ducks shit
on the chickens.
are all attractive women,
less blood stained than one would guess,
wearing their white coats too well.
The stench reaches the other side of the street,
mixing with that of a nearby deli
where meat is roasting on a stick.
A young girl raps on the window
and waves to a rabbit.
She probably thinks of it
as a “bunny.”
